I haven’t planted this year yet…but, these are the beauties that have shown up after a very harsh winter. The Columbine didn’t do so well…although it looks like I’ve quite a bit of re-seeding that’s occurred, so there is Columbine where I didn’t expect it. I also lost a couple of Oriental Poppies. Lupines have come up in several new areas and I’m going to let them go. They are so showy and last so long.
On their first visit to this particular home in the late 1990s, Mom and Dad fashioned my front yard flower bed. They traveled all the way from Ontario with iris plants from Mom’s garden. They are still blooming all of these years later.
The rhubarb is ready to be yanked out… strawberries yet to be photographed, but they are in bloom. I see rhubarb and strawberries on my toast very very soon!
I’m going with a complementary colour scheme in the garden…yellow and purple…have been moving things about and thinking about this for years. It’s such a joy to be creative in the garden.
