The apricot blossoms, just past mid April
The Lenten roses, keeping time with late Easter
Beautiful budding trees and roses
The first sign of bloom on the Bleeding Heart (the Liberal Plant to Conservative sons)
Love the blue of the Periwinkle
and the pinky apricot of the Quince blossom
Lovely Anemones in the garden and all along outside the freshly painted fence
Forget me nots - as if I could
I can hardly believe the rate of growth the peonies are experiencing.
Each morning they seem to have grown another foot, although I know that
is an exaggeration.
The new peonies (newly moved from the Hill Garden) are settling in nicely
not growing at the same rate but nicely budded.
And the Iris - no picture
but I am hoping for a glorious display.
Looking for more soil to fill containers with alyssum, lobelia, geranium,petunia
and oh, lots more.
Along the fence I planted castor beans, sweet peas and morning glories
and now I must find some scarlet runners.
A great gardening adventure, tho' I find my knees are springless these days
and I have to rest a lot, - but it fills the time with some joy and anticipation.
