Spring Blooms

Hello! I thought it's been a long time since I posted some pictures from my garden, so today's post is all about my Spring Blooms. I've been so busy with work and preparing for my daughter's wedding, that I never got around to taking pictures of the Early Spring Blooms in my gardens (like the daffodils and some early flowering trees), so the pictures you will see today are of my mid-spring blooming flowers and trees.

There is a lot of chartreuse yellow in my garden this time of the year. I just love it. This first picture is of a bush in front of my shed. I also have this color in a tree and in some flowers. Here is the color in a flower form. I think this plant is called Cushion Spurge. Its one of my favorite plants because it reseeds easily and has 3 season interest. In the spring its this gorgeous yellow, then its a lovely green foliage plant in the summer, and in the fall the leaves are a beautiful red. I love how the ground cover next to it compliments it so beautifully.

Here is a full shot of the Cushion Spurge and some Creeping Phlox on the hill. I think I only planted one of these plants and it reseeded itself so well. I do not consider it invasive though.

Here is a close up of a ring of Hosta around a maple tree with a shot of more Cushion Spurge and other spring blooms in the background.

This is the view of my garden outside my front porch. The hillside is just blooming with Phlox right now. And the scent when you walk out the door is just heavenly!

This garden looks empty now because I plant annuals in this bed when the weather warms up. Its right outside my front door. This flowering crab was one of the very first trees we planted when we bought our home 12 years ago.

And here is a close up of one of the flowers on the tree. I just love this tree. It has all year interest: beautiful blooms in the spring, pretty green purple foliage in the summer, gorgeous fall foliage, and beautiful berries in the winter for the birds to eat. I can't say enough about it! I love it!

I hope you've enjoyed my little garden tour today. Come and take a tour sometime if your ever in the area! Have a great day! Amy
