Here it is April already but you would think it was May or June.
There are just so many plants growing at the same time this year since we had that week of summer in March.
The tulips were suppose to be white with purple edges. I am watching them to see if the pink will darken or maybe it is my soil that is making them pink.
They look pretty with the pink Bleeding Hearts growing along with them here. I also have several Purple Columbines growing here from seeds that Margy from “My Vintage Garden & Distressed Life”.
I am hoping they will bloom for me this year in their second year of growing. I need to take a picture of the whole beds and I should do it more often than singling out just the blooms.
The Ligularia is looking pretty with its darker foliage which sets off those yellow flowers when it is in bloom. The seeds and plants were given to me by Jim and Pat from “Pat & Jim’s Gardening Adventure”. I have them growing now in the Shade bed and along the Woodland bed.
With mixed seeds you do not know what you are getting and I love all of the different colors of the pansies that grew (Thanks again Becca for the seeds) but not all of the colors compliment each other. So I went out to separate the pansies growing in the window boxes and took out the rusts and yellow ones to put in different window boxes than those that were planted with the purple and burgundy colored boxes.
As I stepped around to the side of the house the breeze brought in the beautiful scent of the lilacs that were blooming on the bank.
I had to take in a deep breath to appreciate the aroma coming from off them. They smelled so wonderful.
Primroses are still blooming away along the walk. My daughters Primroses are so lovely in her new garden bed and I am bummed out that hers are so much bigger than mine. LOL!
This is a Bumblebee sampling the Pulmonaria blooms but I have noticed more Honeybees this spring than last year. A local inn has set up seven hives so maybe their bees are visiting my garden. They are more than welcome.
I did some more tweaking on the new redone bed and added some more birds and a birdhouse so it should look cute when it grows in.
The first day of April started out very cool after a cold day yesterday but it is now up to 70 degrees and the sun is shining bright so March went out like a Lion and April is coming in looking good so far.
The Dogwood and the Redbud trees are blooming here in the Hocking Hills two weeks earlier than last year.
Everyone have a wonderful week ahead and…
