We are having amazing weather here in Seattle…today we are experiencing mid 80’s temperatures and tomorrow we are supposed to have similar weather. You won’t here any complaints from me. It’s just beautiful and the landscape is certainly responding nicely. Although after I write this post, I will need to spend some time out there watering everything by hand…we haven’t even turned on the sprinkler system yet. To be honest, I am looking forward to this summertime chore, that way I can really see what is waking up out there!
This week the Tree Peonies are showing some beautiful blooms! They are so amazingly fragrant, I wish there was a way to share them with you!
We are still seeing a few tulips this week and the columbine and crabapple trees are photo’d below.
Sweet William has bloomed all over the place ~ I allow this plant to roam freely as its such a beautiful filler in the landscape and overwhelmingly fragrant next to the patio.
A few of the lilac’s have appeared as well ~ I think this sunshine is waking everything up a little earlier than normal, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen so much in bloom at the same time.
Looks like the cottage garden that I’ve carefully laid out for the past seven years is finally taking shape the way I intended it to be. The English Bluebells are happy and putting on their own show in the gardens. Cherub statuaries are a must ~ I’ve found all of mine second hand!
Fishtail Cottage’s Garden Party goes live tomorrow morning (Thursdays May 1 – October 2, 2014). I can’t wait to see everyone's garden posts! Please invite your friends ~ everyone is welcome!
