The plants sure are growing quickly right now. Some days I can see a difference just day to day. But after being gone 3 days I was really surprised to see what was happening. The first thing I noticed as I walked up to my house was the really sweet smell in the air. I could smell the apple tree and Daphne 'Summer Ice' all the way in the front yard. What a nice way to be greeted. The next thing I saw was a large box sitting on the front porch. I opened it and was excited to see that the Rabbit weather vane that I had won on Flowergardengirl's give away had already arrived.
I'm not quite sure where it will go, but just wanted to share how nice it was. Thanks again Anna!
The blueberry bushes are just covered in these flowers!
The currant's on the 'Wilder Red' are really growing. Quite a few branches were broken during the fence building, but we should get some to eat this year.
Oxalis oregana (Wood Sorrel) is blooming. It's really pretty under the cedar tree.
Columbine (Aquilegia). The varieties have all mixed and reseeded, so I don't know what they are anymore. I just love this one.
More Columbines. They are all over the front and backyard, most are just getting ready to bloom.
Tiarella 'Crow Feather'. I love the flowers. I have a couple of different varieties. The leaves are very different, but the flowers look the same.
Forget-me-nots (Myosotis). I didn't have quite as many return this year as usual. Most are much smaller and probably won't bloom for awhile.
Hope you are finding lots of new surprises in your gardens!
