It seems my garden is on hold right now.
Some plants are ending their blooms while others are
not quite ready yet.
This Primrose is still growing and adding some newer
The tulips are all but gone now but the Athyrium
’Ursula’s Red’ Japanese Fern is growing fast now
to hide the tulip foliage.
And while the Tirella Foam Flower is blooming
her little heart out the Purple Palace Heuchera is
not quite ready yet for blooms.
The lilacs are fading fast now and I will miss their
fragrance and all of the activity that she caused from
the bees and butterflies.
The hyacinths are gone now and their seed
heads have been removed to add more energy
going to the bulbs.
The peach blossoms are gone now and fruit
may be appearing but freeze and frost warnings
are out for tonight.
The Bleeding Hearts are still going strong.
But the blooms from Jane Magnolia got knocked off
by the heavy rains we had the last two days.
I am not complaining about the rain though because
we really needed it. It had been a very dry April here.
Even the Brunnera has started loosing the tiny
blue blooms with the rains but the leaves are just
getting more beautiful.
The Japanese Blue Wisteria vines are getting leaves and again
this year like all of the others it appears I will not
get one bloom from them. They will become
trellises for clematis now. Some good should come out
of all of that wasted space they are taking.
Believe me I have tried all of the tricks with these
From shocking, moving, pruning and threatening.
So my garden is in a slump right now but the irises have
buds and so do the roses and astilbes so there will be
more blooms to take their place soon.

Happy Gardening Everyone !
