Spring has finally arrived in Michigan (I think…). Yesterday was 48 degrees F. I’m optimistic our last killing frost is behind us. Now its time to do some planting.
Here’s what’s happening in the garden now.
Beautiful blue forget-me-nots are scattered all over the garden this time of year. Oh how I wish they bloomed all season.
The pink dogwood looks great. We managed to avoid a killing frost until after it bloomed.
Dicentra ‘King of Hearts’ nestled between the boxwood and hostas.
Forget-me-nots are one of my favorite spring flowers. They look great with this blue hosta.
My alliums have started to bloom and are scattered throughout the entire garden. Take that you deer!
A group of purple columbines that managed to avoid the local ground hog.
My iris have actually started blooming in the garden, but here is a photo showing their buds.
Another view across the garden in May. It’s great to be back in the garden again!
The pink dogwood in bloom.
I love this variegated Solomon’s seal that grows in the front shade garden. My parents gave me a cool glass ornament for Christmas. I think it looks perfect with the Solomon’s seal.
