It's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day again and I'm happy to share some of my blooms with you.
I'll start with my tulips and daffodils. I love this combination of Tulip 'Christmas Marvel' and Daffodil 'Thalia'.
If there is one spring flower that I wish I had many more of, it's tulips. I just lose too many of them to the critters but I can't resist planting a few every fall.
These are the last of the daffodils. Not sure of the name.
I am loving the miniature flowers you can buy these days. These mini irises stand about 6 inches tall and bloom earlier than the tall ones. So cute!
Another favorite is bleeding hearts. Usually the pink ones bloom at the same time but they are behind this year. I'll try to post some next month.
I lost a lot of my forget-me-nots this winter. Enough remain to hopefully reseed themselves again.
Variegated Solomon's Seal
Epimedium Rubrum also known as Red Barrenwort.
The heart-shaped leaves of this plant have a red tinge which turns to bronze in the fall. The blooms may be small, however the whole plant makes an impact in a woodland garden. This plant can be used as a ground cover. I love the foliage on this plant just as much as the flowers. I will definitely be adding more Epimediums to my shade garden.
Heuchera 'Little Cutie Sweet Tart'
Virginia Bluebells are almost done blooming.
Dogwoods are in bloom......
and the Crabapples are just done.
They were so beautiful this year.
