Folks, its likely the best time of the year for flowers in our garden. We are finally getting it to what we want. OK yeah right. Part of the joy of gardening in experimentation and exploration.
Anyway there is a lot of photos to share, let me begin..
Creeping phlox and primrose together.
Muscari with an honey bee!
Pansies, we have lots of different pansies, this is just one of them. Survived an 8 degree night this past winter as you can see. Planted last fall.
Daffodil ' Mt Hood'
Daffodil 'Actaea' Showy and tall makes a great cut flower!
Daffodil 'Broadway Star' one of my favorites for sure.
Daffodil 'Sailboat' These produce a lot of flowers!
Daffodil 'Sir Winston Churchill'
Daffodil 'Quail' at least I think it is Quail.
Daffodil 'Delibe' drop dead gorgeous!
Daffodil 'Pink Charms' never seen any pink on this.
Daffodil 'Silver Smiles'
Daffodil 'Falconet' Nice..
Penny's Pink hellebore. Wow wow!
Bleeding Heart, this is our newest one Meg brought back from Wilmington! Nearly 3 foot tall.
This is a tiny Wild Bleeding Heart. About 6 inches tall.
Bleeding Heart from the front garden.
15+ year old primrose. The oldest in our garden. Has been known to shoot about 50 stems of blooms, slow to burst this year.
We've had this primrose 3 years, man its crazy.
I split this primrose when we planted it, the other plant looks almost as good as this one.
Native anemone "Windflower"in our garden.
Our newest camellia, Camellia X 'Tiny Princess'. Meg and I visited the Coker Arboretum in March of 2010 and saw this blooming with thousands of fallen flowers covering the ground. Anyway Camellia Forest had it and I brought it home, see my post from 2010 about it with photos at
