Although it took a while for spring to get here, the garden is sure in high gear now! It's changing daily with new flowers blooming and shrubs filling out. I hope you enjoy today's walk through my garden.
This is the East side of the house.
This Columbine looks so beautiful growing through the Clove Currant!
Iris, Iris everywhere!
German Chamomile and Dianthus. The Chamomile self-seeded all over. I love it!
"Wine and Roses" Weigela.
This little path goes to the pergola and ends in the Hidden Garden.
"Brown Lasso" Iris.
My very good friend Angie gave me this Peony. Isn't it just beautiful! I think it's happy in its new home!
"Carolina Moonlight" Baptisia.
Paths are such an important part of a cottage garden.
We've been walking for a while...let's take a break under the pergola. There is a gentle breeze and the scent of Roses and Iris wafts through the air.
On the front path, "Batik" Iris in the foreground and "Prissy Miss" Iris in the back. Trimming these shrubs is on my "to do" list. (My "to do" list never seems to get smaller!)
The first Poppy of the season! Soon there will be dozens and dozens more!
"Kinkajou Shrew" Iris.
Hello little angel...don't be shy!
Along the front path looking toward Morrow Park.
My Crossvines are finally taking off...I'm so happy to see these flowers!
And finally, this little cutie is a windchime and he has a "whirly-gig" in his tummy. He smiles at all the visitors who come through the side gate!
I hope you enjoyed spending time with me in my garden today. I better get back to my garden work (play). Today I'm planting more plants (yes, I am obsessed), mowing, weeding and finally planting my seeds! What are you doing in the garden today?
