Spring is Nature's way of saying, "Let's party" !
~ Robin Williams
It's (finally) spring and the flowers in my gardens are having a party. Spring is all about watching things come to life in the gardens (and mourning some that didn't).
I love Bleeding Hearts. I added three to the garden outside the front door- right in my line of sight while I have my morning coffee.
Solomon's Seal - another favorite. Maybe I have a thing for delicate, hanging blossoms.
Talk about taking over and spilling over the wall - I have a love/hate relationship with Ajuga Reptans. I think it's the Reptans part that's a problem - this is an aggressive spreader. While I love the upright bright blue blossoms, I should have been more careful where I planted it. I'm digging it out and moving it on the hillside where it can take over. Have to give this one credit for determination; it's even coming up between the stones steps and the driveway!
Basket of Gold- I have visions of this taking over and spilling over the wall. So far that's all it is, a vision.
This Spotted Dead Nettle is also a determined spreader, but I have it somewhere that it can do its thing without taking over other plants.
Coral is not my color, but this flowering quince blooms with gusto, so I let it stay.
This azalea used to live in another spot and did nothing. We moved it out front and it seems pretty happy. (Yes, that's more ajuga in the background!).
I love Forget-Me-Nots. So blue, so happy and so willing to drop seeds and spring up all over.
Spring - the wonderful season that (almost) makes me forget winter.
