Grape Hyacinths with some Catmint.
These red tulips were so striking this year. Brighter and bolder then I remember from previous years.
Thank goodness there was no late frost or blizzards this year to ruin our Crabapple blooms. Last year we didn't get any blooms because of the weather.
I try to keep this bed as free of perennials as possible because it is right in front of the house, so I want to have lots of room in it to plant annuals. I have pulled this Laminin (the purple flower) out so many times, yet it is so vigorous, it keeps growing back. It certainly is pretty though, isn't it?
I love the color of this orange tulip.
Here the Laminin is growing so vigorously it's taken over a huge part of the garden. But I don't mind it's vigor in this garden. This garden is very far from house and I like to spend as little time in this garden as possible. I can't even see this garden from my house, so I don't care about it as much. I grow naturalized plants in here; like orange day lilies, so that it is very low maintenance.
I was so happy to see so many daffodils this year. I felt the blooms were diminishing and they needed to be dug up and divided...which would be a lot of work! For whatever reason, they seemed to have re-energized themselves.
I've always loved the rose-like blooms on this shrub. I only wish there were more of them and they lasted longer.
