The front yard seems to be bursting with new flowers right now, the backyard is a little slower with new blooms. Quite a bit of the back is shaded with tall evergreen trees, so most of the flowering "action" in many parts of the yard seems to be early spring or a bit later in the summer. I did manage to find some new blooms with hints of more to come.
Toadflax (linaria) is a really tall and airy plant. It's just beginning to bloom and will bloom for another month or so if I deadhead after the first flush of flowers. I just planted a small plant several years ago, and it has filled in this area on it's own. I haven't found it to be an aggressive self seeder. It's about 3 1/2 feet tall.
Here it is with the one surprise Snapdragon that has come back for two years. Even though it looks kind of odd, I don't have the heart to pull out an annual that survived one of the coldest winters that we've had in a long time. It's got tenacity so it gets to stay!
Hardy fuchsia 'Queen Esther' is a newer plant and just loaded with buds that are just beginning to open. The outer petals are actually a light pink. These poor plants are really being chewed up by something, I've never had that problem with hardy fuchsias before.
Oakleaf hydrangea 'Pee Wee' will only get to be 3 feet by 3 feet which it is about now. I think the buds are really pretty with their green coloring. I've found the Oakleaf hydrangeas to be very tough plants that can withstand dry shade very well.
Spiderwort (tradescantia) just started to bloom a couple of days ago. I just moved it last year and it already seems to be getting bigger where it is now.
Clematis 'Henryi' has it's first couple of blooms. This seems to be a fairly fast growing clematis and is filling the trellis in nicely.
Looks like it should be a good day for some more cleanup, and hopefully some new flowers!
