By now, with the exception of the flowering ornamental onions, all the spring blooms are done. We've gotten a lot of rain the past couple of weeks, a couple of frost scares, and some cold weather, so I have not been out in my garden as I should have been. And it shows…it is very, very weedy. Because of the rain, everything has grown several feet in a week, and is very lush and green, but so have the weeds. Now I am on vacation for nine days, so I won't be able to garden at all. I can only imagine the mess I will come back to when I return. Oh well, I will try not to dwell on it and enjoy myself on vacation. The weeds can wait.
In the meantime, here is what is in bloom in my garden right now:
Wild Columbine and Catmint. I love Wild Columbine. It grows in dry shade. It reseeds nicely, but is not invasive. It has pretty foliage when not in bloom. And I love the way the little pink and yellow flowers seem to dance in the air. Such a graceful flower.
Have a great day! Amy
