What's Happening In The Garden

I'm so far behind in my gardens this Spring. So much needs done, especially weeding! I'm hoping to soon have a stretch of time to devote to getting my gardens back in order. My husband has had some health problems the last few weeks so I haven't had much time to work in the gardens lately. Thankfully the flowers look pretty even though they're surrounded by weeds that seem to grow like crazy. Let's see what's happening in the garden this week.....

The sweet Forget-Me-Nots are blooming! I love their dainty blue flowers!

They've filled in this area nicely to form a carpet under the shrubs at the top of this bed. I love the texture of the Silver Mound that's creeping out over the stone wall.

 Silver Mound is so soft & delicate looking!

The Crab apple tree is covered with pretty pink blooms.

Mountain Bluets are such an interesting looking flower.

The deer really enjoyed snacking on the Azalea bushes last winter so they're not shaped too nice this year...but at least they still have pretty flowers!

Wild Violets are so pretty and are always welcomed in my garden when they pop up!

This is my favorite of the Columbines that I have in my garden. I love it's color and frilliness!

Nature's soap ~ Soapwort is spreading quickly to cover the bank.

Bleeding Heart looks so pretty with it's arching stems & heart shaped flowers.

Only a couple of Primroses are blooming... most are done for the year.

The Lungwort has some sweet little blooms on it.

There are even a few Grape Hyacinths still blooming. 


  1. Just lovely, I her you about the weeds never ends. Where are you located?
    Will be back again.

  2. Thanks, Rosemary! I'm in Western Pennsylvania...It never seems to fail that at least once each summer, life events happen that keep me from the garden for awhile and I get behind in the weeding. I keep thinking that as I get older it might be a good idea to downsize my gardens... but then I keep coming across more plants that I just have to have! :-) ~ Judy
