Blooms for the week…

(From upper L-R across & down: Narcissus 'Ice Follies', Lavender ' Anouk', Dwarf Iris, Pulmonaria 'Raspberry Splash', Poppy Anemone 'Burgundy' and Narcissus 'Thalia')

This week things are starting to pop in the garden.  I have some new things that were just planted last fall such as the ‘Ice Follies’ Narcissus and this gorgeous burgundy Poppy Anemone blooming.  However some old faithfuls like the ‘Thalia’ Daffodils, which are extremely fragrant by the way, and this dwarf Iris are making their spring debut.  A new spring planting is this Lavender which was full of buds when I purchased it last week at Lowe’s.  This is the second season in the garden for my Pulmonaria ‘Raspberry Splash’ and it has doubled in size and is full of blooms at the moment.

The spring bulbs make up the majority of the blooms this week.  Miniature narcissus and grape hyacinths  are blooming in the lawn and garden.  Evergreen Candytuft or Iberis sempervirens combines well with these spring blooming bulbs.  What’s blooming in your garden this week?  🙂
