I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
This month seems to be going by so fast and April is living up to its description as a month of showers.
The garden plants and trees are loving all of the rain and so many things are starting to grow now.
The rose bushes are looking good and leafing out all over.
I planted two new ones over the weekend which I had purchased from Wayside Gardens.
Bonica a clear pink Modern Bush Rose.
I have tried to get the pink Bonica for two years now and by the time that I ordered it they were sold out. This year I ordered really early and I am so glad to add it to finally be adding it to the Rose Garden.
The Iberis sempervirens white Candytuft that was grown from seed two years ago is finally getting blooms for the first time this Spring. I have it lining a section of the front walkway so I am glad to see it getting blooms.
I found some native Cutleaved Toothwort growing in the woods along the Woodland bed. It has such pretty pink blooms. I will have to thank the birds or the wind for them.
I want to watch when it goes to seed to see about getting some to grow closer to the Woodland bed.
Some more pink daffodils are now blooming. I really like the ruffled bloom on this one.
This daffodil was suppose to be pink also but it is a pretty split trumpeted yellow instead.
The pulsatilla vulgaris aka Pasque Flower “Red Clock” is now opening.
I have two colors of Periwinkle or Creeping Myrtle now blooming on the garage banking.
The trees in the woods and around are starting to put on tiny leaves and the Peach Blossoms are so pretty.
