Garden is Bursting!

 Apparently my garden is just over 20 years old....

 and the youngest plant Magnolia Sieboldii 
is blooming profusely...

 this moth is devouring these chive blooms...

 and the Jack in the Pulpit approves of its new home moved just recently.

 Columbines grace most people gardens and
this blue one delicately hangs waiting for a bee....

 here comes a bee
would you look at that...
how timely!

 This dogwood, Cornus Florida, is completely covered and should look
so very white soon.

 Ron loves clematis and this one called Moonlight
is aptly named because at night
the blooms are so visible...
especially with a full moon. 

 Guernsey Cream from the underside...
I sniffed this one and it's passes my test...
love it!

 Japanese Painted ferns are spreading after many years...
great colour combinations with the maroon and grey.

The Wisteria is so very happy this year...
many blossoms because of a moderate spring.

Oh Hi..I'm standing under the wisteria arbour,
night time is approaching
so I think I'll head in and pull up the covers.

Next time~~~!

  3. Beautiful flowers!! I love your garden. Oh Sophie... you always look so serious when you're in your garden. It must be where you do all your thinking. Then when you get to the beach - It's fun time and we see your playful look.

    1. I discovered the Jack in the Pulpit at, would you believe Home depot, 10 years ago or more. I bought it and now have many. These fellers get very huge so had to move them from one area to another in order to appreciate them more!

    1. Hi Ryker...we've lost many,many plants over the years. This isn't disconcerting...it's just a matter of trying something to see if it works. So what we have left now are the hardy plants that love Maritime climate! Now pruning and relocating plants is priority...love this!!!
