Now Alliums are showing colour....
Brunnera Jack Frost is forming a clump of heart-shaped silver leaves, delicately veined with mint green.
Love the sprays of bright blue Forget-me-not flowers ,says spring to me.
Pulmonaria crepe paper like blue and pink flowers.So delicate in looks but a very tough plant....
|old fashioned name , sailors and ladies|
Another early spring job , planting pots up.
Hint ; line pots with coffee filters.. works so well all the dirt stays in the pot.... I enjoy making up my own pots rather than buy them predone.
Yes I wait a little longer for that lush look but like the satisfaction of seeing the pot fill out.This pot is sitting on the patio table in a shady spot.....
Pot is planted with rose pink impatien, lobelia sky blue , snow crystals alyssum... and trailing regatta lobelia.. have to have that sweet scent of alyssum in the air on warm summer days.
|Spicy scent on a warm day fills the patio area|
This shrub fills the bill planted right beside the patio.
Viburnum Burkwoodi ,has a very heady spice fragrance . All season interest with its shiny leaves thru the summer and red berries in the fall..
These are the highlights in my garden this week.
What is shining in your garden?
