I have some blooms to post for MsGreen"thumb"jean's Bloomin' Tuesday. I just posted a short one about verbenia bonariensis this evening, but see that Jean has opened her link to posts, so I am going to go ahead and put this up and get on her link. Click here or scroll down to see the post on verbena and talking to plants.
It's cold and rainy. I'm looking forward to the 70s they say are coming in a few days. I hope you all are enjoying the beauty of spring.
Awhile back, I posted a photo of this bergenia in bud, thinking that was the bloom, then, I posted it when the buds opened. Now, sections of blooms have separated from each other. What a fun plant! I'm thinking maybe my other 2 aren't going to bloom this year. I hope they all do next year.
After seeing primroses on other's blogs, I found a couple that asked to come home with me. The tag says, "Primula Auricula Mix".
These are a dianthus or sweet William of some kind. They bloomed all summer last year, and are getting started on their 3rd season in the garden. There are 2 blooms open so far.
These lovely irises are some of those I dug out from a yard where the house was about to be torn down. These are the first of that group to bloom They smell wonderful!
I can't remember what this little groundcover is. I don't let it go too far, because it's on the edge of one of my side yard flower beds.
I need to plant more violas in the ground. These have more blooms on them than those in pots.
These are the first photos I've posted this year on the woodland phlox blooming. I am tickled that I have 2 clumps besides the ones that have lived in a washtub ever since we moved here 12 years ago.
What I think is dwarf comfrey has lots more blooms than when I first posted.
