Its Friday again and I am walking the garden to see whats in bloom. A few more flowers are blooming this week and that is only because we finally had some sunshine. It is definitely spring here with a forecast of sunny skies for a few days.
This is the most awkward photo but it was hard to get this one as the plants kept blowing around in the wind. This is Kerria, an old-fashioned shrub in my garden. It has these double yellow flowers from March to almost November with its largest flush over the next couple of months. This lovely plant had a hard pruning last year but its back and looking good this year.
What can I say? The Primula just get better each week. This has been my best so far as it doesn’t seem to get eaten by snails and slugs as much as the others.
I was excited to see the Brunnera “Jack Frost’ in bloom already. I love the variegated leaves and tiny forget-me-not blossoms. Wouldn’t those tiny flowers look great on the easter dining table? Maybe place some in an eggshell vase as a place setting. This is one of my favourite plants in the garden. Once the flowers are finished, I trim them off and then the leaves go crazy. The leaves get way bigger in size similar to a Hosta leaf. This is a great plant to add to your Hosta garden as it likes a spot in dappled light to full shade.
Well, that’s about it for today. I am joining Tootsie Time for a Friday flaunt so be sure to check out Glenda’s garden in Alberta.
