Once again, Bloom Day snuck up on me...blame it on a busy weekend at Hortlandia! It's amazing how much the garden changes in a months time, isn't it...especially in spring, things seem to change every single day.
The Mukdenia 'Crimson Fans' that was just starting to bloom last month are in full bloom...not the showiest, I'll grant you...but charming, nonetheless.
Spanish Bluebells (Hyacinthoides) are pretty much a weed in my garden...still, they are pretty when in bloom.
A great garden stalwart, Geranium macrorrhizum, always comes through. I love working around these plants, as they smell wonderful.
You just can't beat purple and yellow in springtime. These purple Iris are some of the many Iris that I inherited with the house. I've been slowly replacing some of them with different Iris cultivars, both for some variety, and to extend their season. I'll always keep a few of these beauties, though.
Just about the time I forget about it, the ornamental Strawberry starts to bloom! I think this one is called 'Pink Panda'
Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum odoratum variegatum) always surprises me by popping out of the sea of Oxalis in the shady north border.
It's so great, knowing the whole growing season is just starting...and there is so much yet to come.
