Spring Blooms

June 10th, 2014

I didn’t bring very many of my flowering plants to Maine with me.  There was the boxwood hedge that made it in and a few of my hydrangeas.  I did manage to get a few of my ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint, which is one of my favorite perennials.

The rest of these lovelies were all here when I arrived. With the exception of the rock geranium and bleeding heart, they are all new flowers for me. I had a purple columbine in my garden in Ohio but it was not like the one blooming here. I thought it would be nice to give you a glimpse of the color I’m seeing in my garden right now.

I’m not sure if I have a favorite yet, I’m still watching these plants to see what they are like throughout the seasons.

What’s blooming in your garden this week?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
