Happy Mother’s Day! Flowers are the most common present to give this day; whether fresh floral arrangements, hanging baskets/planters or potted for the garden. Let’s check out what I have in my garden this week.
This Week In My Garden…
Lush pillows of silver mound awoke.
Sedum is sweeping across my perennial garden, just behind my rock border.
Trumpet vines are timidly showing their leaves.
Abundant Alliums (fairy wands) are beautiful full purple globes dancing is the wind.
The first rose of the year opened, welcoming the new deck.
The small chicks of last year, fill out to be adult hens.
Burgundy Glow Ajuga races towards the sky.
The white azalea joins the party of pink, lavender and red azaleas.
The oaks are stretching out and showcasing their new foliage and hugging my shade garden.
Of course this isn’t all… The bleeding heart is still wear its heart on its sleeve. The Japanese Maple waves hello and goodbye by the lane. The long blooming grape hyacinths are the welcoming committee to all the returning perennials…
What’s arriving and in bloom this week where you are? What are your Mother’s Day plans?
