This past weekend of gorgeous weather kept me in the garden planting, weeding and mulching. It’s nice to get some rain to help my new plantings settle in nicely. The blooms are really starting to come quickly now as the season progresses. I’m loving how long the Candytuft has been in full bloom and now the Solomon’s Seal is at its’ peak as well. Those dainty little bells with the green tint around the edges are so darling. My white Dutch Iris is still my favorite of all the other colors and the earliest bloomer as well. I just noticed that inside is faint hint of purple, do you see it? Last season I had so much success with purple Angelonia which is an annual that I was happy to find a white version at Lowe’s last week to add to the Arbor Garden. It will help fill in the gaps from the spent Daffodils.
Look the first Clematis bloom of the season is the ‘Nelly Moser’! All the others have buds on them too, but Nelly beat them to the punch this spring. The Spanish Bluebells are in full bloom throughout the garden beds now. I love them so much that I happily spread them in any bare spot I can find. Here’s another shot of the Mountain Bluet that I showed yesterday, but this angle does it better justice. Just love those fringy petals and the varying shades of purple & magenta in the center stamens. Here’s the other Angelonia I found at Lowe’s last week to go in the New Garden. Last summer I had the deep purple shade but this color is pretty too. To see more Bloomin’ Tuesday Posts or to join in this week please visit Jean @ Ms Greenthumb.
