Spring Garden

Many of my bulbs and early Spring perennials are up.

After we had our old aspen with all the crown galls removed last year, my husband bought several bags of bulbs on sale in the fall and planted them under our birch trees. The foliage behind and in front of them are spirea bushes.

My lovely Fragrant Snowball (Viburnum carlesii) is now flowering and scenting up the garden. It doesn’t have the greatest foliage but as a cheery burst of scent in early summer it is a treasure.

Some lovely bulbs by the garage. These are much shorter than the regular daffodils we have in the front and back gardens.

This is by our front porch, and is a mixture of muscari or Grape Hyacinth, cowslips, primroses, and violets with a beautiful hosta.

It’s nice to get out and take photos of my favourite plants, and say “Hello” to them again.

    I miss spring bulbs! It’s too hot here, and too many determined insects to eat them. We do have spider lillies but oh I long for tulips, snowdrops and daffodils!

      Hi Debra! Well, you can always grab your board and surf, a hibiscus in your ear. VBG

      I often think of you there with the heat and humidity. It would be too much for me, but it is a lovely place. The insects are frightening, yikes. I guess you get used to it.
