Most mornings you will find me here seated on the patio enjoying my home made mocha! Watching the newly hatched birds visiting the bird feeders. The wonders of the garden are what I enjoy seeing this time of year! We have had wild bunny sightings for the first time ever here at Fishtail Cottage ~ I know they will be unwelcome eventually, but for now their little brown ears and tails are fun to see.
Many new blooms have appeared over the past week. Both Bachelor Buttons and Allium has opened up, along with one of my all time favorite English Blue Bells scattered through out the garden.
An amazingly fragrant shrub has shown its beauty this past week is the Northern Hi-Lights Azalea. On a sunny day – no matter where you are in the garden, the fragrance can be inhaled by the most subtle breeze. If you don’t have one of these in your garden, it’s worth the time finding one!
Eight inch dinner plate sized peonies are now in bloom compliments of my Peony Trees!
Sweet Woodruff (an absolute favorite because its’ a non invasive ground cover) has begun it’s own show.
Lilacs also have appeared in the garden landscape – no complaints here to take in the gorgeous fragrance found from these beauties! First one is ‘unnamed’, Beauty of Moscow and Lilac Sensation.
Rhododendron’s are in bloom Jean Marie and Cunningham White…
Strawberry plants beginning to bloom amongst the hosta’s, along with Snowball Shrubs, Red Twig Dogwood and Chartreuse Mexican Orange Blossom (fragrant).
As of today, here are a few landscape photo’s so that you can see these some of these gorgeous blooms together in harmony. You can see that I scatter my plants throughout the garden beds, no formal plan ~ just blooms, blooms and more blooms!
Thanks for coming by to take a peek at the newest changes here at Fishtail Cottage! Hope you are having a wonderful week! Please come back later this evening and link up the the Cottage Garden Party!
