Still feeling the excitement of spring blooms here at Fishtail Cottage! Seeing color continue to appear from the dark and dreary winters dirt is so incredible! I still can’t believe how this mild winter we have had here in Washington State has allowed the garden to progress almost a month earlier than last year. I’m pleased to share with you what has appeared in the gardens since my last post!
White Flowering Current is attracting our native hummingbirds. One of my favorite shrubs in the garden. My pink ones are not even close to budding out (yet) but the white one is so satisfying for now.
This week fragrant hyacinth and yellow daffodils are added to my list of bulbs that continue to burst in the landscape.
Remember I shared in my last post about Camellia's appearing in the gardens, well this tree has exploded in blooms – already starting to drop spent blooms. I transplanted this Camellia from our previous home and have enjoyed watching it grow here at Fishtail Cottage.
The Candytuft is planted along the area between my rose terrace and grassy area and used to be so prolific when it would bloom in the past. It still looks pretty, but the blooms certainly don’t put on a show of flowers like it used to. Anyone feel that after your Candytuft has been in your landscape?
Impatiens Omeiana is popping up all over ~ I know I planted this a few years ago, and it has certainly taken off this year, the pretty reds and yellows in the foliage add a pretty contrast to the landscape. I’ve never seen flowers on this plant, but I read it’s supposed to have yellow blooms appear on it.
Other spring blooms that I look forward to and are definitely some cottage garden favorites is the Brunnera “Jack Frost” and my eclectic varieties of Lungwort…I just love these whimsical flowers!
Thank you so much for coming over and seeing what's blooming here at my place! xoxo, tracie
