Cottage Garden 4/25/16

Can you believe that the Peony Trees have already come and gone in my landscape since I last shared my garden with you?  Here are a few of my favorite photo's that I captured over the past couple weeks of them.  I only have three Peony Trees in my landscape here at Fishtail Cottage and they are just stunning.

 
 
 You see that white blooming tree? that is my Adirondack Crabapple Tree that is absolutely gorgeous and adds so much charm to the garden this time of year. The blooms on this tree start out with pink buds which turn into stark white flowers.  Today it is raining pretty hard here in Seattle, so most of the blooms are falling to the ground.
 
Columbine has begun to bloom everywhere in the garden...this seems to seed any place that there is available dirt!
 
 The Spanish Bluebell bulbs are also blooming prolifically - I have them in white, blue and purple.
 

My most favorite bloom right now though in my landscape is the Northern Hi-Lights Azalea. This started out as just one plant in my garden, but after the first year bloom - I couldn't help but order several more plants for my garden landscape.  This flowering shrub is so fragrant and so gorgeous with it's pale yellow colored flowers if I had room I would plant more! 

I love this time of year and seeing the landscape changing daily! To see more of my garden photo's click HERE to follow me on Facebook, and HERE to follow me on Instagram!

Fabulous blooming in your wonderful garden. What a sight! Bringing summer so much closer. Here it is still a bit cold and I have to wait at least a month to see my Peonies in bloom. Looking forward to it.
Have a nice evening.
