I am truly enjoying every day that I look out our windows and see more life in the landscape. I am excited to see that I have even more tulips opening this week ~ is it weird I get a little sad when they disappear for the season? Waiting a whole year for the anticipation of spring again seems so silly, but I love that feeling!!!
It seems that these later blooming tulips are even more prettier than the early blooms!
I have my first lilac that made it’s appearance this week! so yummy! After I write this post, I’m going back out to clip some to bring inside!
Also the Cunningham White Rhododendron has begun to bloom! I love the pastel pink this flower has!
The Bleeding Hearts and Heuchra has certainly perked up the garden beds this past week…I have both of these plants EVERYWHERE in my landscape ~ they look good in sun or shade and no matter what type of soil. Both are just such happy plants and add a whimsical texture!
Although I believe they need to be planted in ‘masses’ to give the look of a prairie like setting in the gardens is the gorgeous English Bluebells…I started the garden landscape with only blue, but have added both white and pink as well…(my pinks are not blooming yet).
Here are the English Bluebells in my backyard landscape boarding the grass!
Please get ready to join the Garden Party over here at Fishtail Cottage ~ MAY 1st! I can’t wait to see you and your gardens! xoxo, tracie
