It’s been a bit since I posted my blooms for Bloomin’ Tuesday. Tomorrow is the end of March which is exciting don’t you think? April will bring even more blooms and changes. Everyday I go out to find more things emerging from the ground or starting to flower. This perennial Alyssum is a new plant for me this year. It came to me in the mail already full of buds just waiting to open. I couldn’t imagine my garden with out the evergreen Candytuff. ‘Snowflake’ is a bushier variety than the unknown one I’ve had for years. Don’t ask me how these Grape Hyacinths ended up in the middle of the lawn but they are naturalized in several spots.
Muscari Bi-color is a new bulb for me this year. So far I find the two-toned blues interesting. Wild violets grow sporatically through my garden beds & lawn. I realize they can be a bit weedy but some are so pretty I let them stay. The Skullcap Hyssop is a native plant that I picked up a couple of years ago. Of course the camera faded it out to blue when the true color is a very pale lavender. I just love the dainty bells even though they tend to face downwards.
The Pink Azaleas that I inherited with the house are full of buds and starting to open. Narcissus ‘Minnow’ which I showed yesterday in my ‘Ode to Daffodils’ post. I think these are so sweet that I will plant more next fall for sure. And finally is the beautiful blue blooms of Periwinkle that grows in my hanging planters on the shed wall. This plant is very invasive but it does well in containers and comes back strong year after year. I really love the variegated foliage which lasts up till frost.
