Fishtail Cottage Garden March / April 2017
This gorgeous photo of Nicco Pearl Camellia is what I have been waiting for since purchasing it almost a year ago for my patio planter.
The first of my blooms was this Raspberry Splash Lungwort, I keep transplanting new starts throughout the landscape to bring color where early spring color is missing.Another favorite first to bloom are the beautiful Hellebore, which come in so many colors and shapes now days, you cannot go wrong with any you find out there in your local nurseries.
Seeing all of the gorgeous trees begin to leaf out here at Fishtail Cottage brings so much hope to ones soul. I especially love this Acer Japanese Maple Orido Nishiki.
Bergenia / "Elephant ear"
Love the bloom of Bradford Pear Trees, but the fragrance of them is just awful...just so funny how something so beautiful can produce such a horrible smell.
Seeing the Hino Crimson Azalea in the landscape makes my heart so happy!
This "Gold Heart" Bleeding Heart isn't the easiest to find - but with the chartreus foliage it makes it a favorite bloom in the landscape.
Hosta's opening up is a good sign that summer weather is on its way.
So much opening up on the front walkway, but the "Impatiens Omeiana" (in the front) that almost glow in the dark at night is a favorite among guests here at my home.
The arbor going up to the chicken coop is beginning to see life of the Blush Noisette Climbing Rose and the Autumn Sunset Camillia.
The Japanese Acer that spills over the pondless waterfall is looking so pretty this time of year. Birds love visiting now that the waterfall is getting some shad. One thing I do to keep my pond from algae is pouring a jug of vinegar in the water...it definitely keeps everything clean.
The Robar Camellia is so pretty lining the flagstone pathway this month. even when the petals fall to the ground they look just gorgeous!
As you can see so much evolved in the month of March and April ~ Can't wait to share with you more that has happened here at Fishtail Cottage in May!
Thank you so much for coming over and visiting today! I've certainly missed interacting with everyone here on my blog.
