Friday Flaunts in My Garden

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.

Kerria

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.

Primula

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.

Brunnera

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.
