tour of my spring flowers

Cut the yard in record time, so here's a quickie tour of the flowers that have been blooming in my backyard this spring.

This is the snowball viburnum. It was full of blooms this year! Now most of the petals have rained down and they do look like snow on the ground.

This is our allium. They look so unusual poking way up out of the garden bed.

This is a mountain bluet. Love those delicate petals!

The white peonies are always first to bloom of all of the colors of peonies that we have. The tightly closed bud that you can see in the photo will be pink when it deigns to open up.

Speaking of pink, here are some of the only tulips to survive the annual depredation of the bulbs by the vicious bunnies. We need to plant more bulbs--just didn't get a chance to this past fall.

This is a Japanese iris. More are blooming now, but I liked this shot.

A few coral bells are starting to make their way out. They're a fun splash of color against that green foliage.

And last but not least, these are our white azaleas. The bushes are filled with blooms. I have a photo similar to this one as my desktop. The petals have almost a translucent yet sparkly quality to them. So fun! And that's also a teaser for what I've got planned for my next blog entry--a crafty project that I did which has a translucent and kinda sorta sparkly look to it. Stay tuned! :-)


  1. How pretty. What a pleasure they must to see and greet you each morning. I'm here in hot, dry Arizona. We have our flowers, but since I'm from New York, I miss many of the ones you've shown. thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous garden. I know that keeping it going takes a lot of work.

  3. Wow what a lovely garden you have. Thank you so much for sharing. Cathy xxxx
