Soft Sunday Morning

By on April 10, 2012

I took a quick walk with my camera this morning to discover the ever-changing spring garden.

Things are happening so fast in my garden I don’t want to miss a thing!

Some of the Scilla are blooming in the east garden.

The Spiderwort, a vigorous plant is popping up everywhere – self seeder you have to keep your eye on!

I bought these beauties on clearance at Lowes –I misplaced their name tag.

My heart skipped a beat with excitement – the Peonies have buds already – they usually bloom in May.

The Hellebora are still performing exceptionally well this year.

I am becoming very fond of the Knockout roses – these pink ones are the backdrop to the flowers in the front garden.

I transplanted these Iris and the Crape Myrtle last year to the front bed – I love the contrast in the color of the bloom to the new leaves. Yes, we Crape murder.

I am thrilled at the progress of my newest garden dear – the Eden rose my son gave me for Christmas. Several buds are already on this baby bush!

The La Marne – my delight! This large, old rose bush was one of the draws to purchasing this house.

This sweet little rose is one of my mystery roses. I was gifted a number of roses from a neighbor who got tired of her roses that she rooted from an old garden in town – I have tagged the unknown roses and hope to discover their names this year.

Another Lowes clearance buy – these Dianthus are just like candy in the garden.


Another mystery rose – I adore this rose for its beautiful color, draping branches and sweet fragrance.

Our Westside brick patio had to be lifted – my husband replaced all the plumbing in our house – the line to the meter ran underneath the patio. Despite this and because of the mild winter, these Snapdragons are amazing!

Azaleas – what southern garden would be complete without them.

My newest Knockout roses – clearance last summer from K-Mart!

While moving things around this spring, I created a small container garden with Hosta, Jacob’s Ladder, Spiderwort and pansies.

The wee little fairies are coming!

The Columbine are beginning to bloom!

Joyous! What a wonder and a gift from God the very many blossoms we can have in our gardens. I don’t want to miss a moment of them.
