And yesterday my dad and I had our annual trip to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show here in Seattle. Which prompted more excitement and desire to see this years garden unfold. After the show, I came home to find several garden blooms and snapped some pics to share with you of what is blooming this week.
The Blush Fairy Camellia has begun to bloom in my front porch cement urns. I saw this plant last year at the NW Flower and Garden Show and immediately began searching for it. I found two very tender diseased plants at a local nursery and have spent the last year nurturing them - my reward is seeing these beautiful blooms. Love the whimsical and dainty blooms this plant is sharing with me.
Also dreaming of what is to come is the booms of our Bradford Pear Trees. We planted these back in 2011 and love the way they've grown and provide shade and privacy during the summer months. What is the prettiest is when they bloom their white flower in masses! I find all stages of this tree just beautiful! Between each of the trees I have Pink Rock Rose and Sandwort to help with keeping the weeds to a minimal.
So what is in full bloom here at Fishtail Cottage?
Hellebores (Lenten Rose)
Daffodils (Narcissus bulb)
Snow Drop Bulb
White Flowering Current (a hummingbirds favorite)
The most amazing fragrant flower ~ Daphne!
Looking forward to sharing more of my garden with you next week! xoxo, tracie
