Lots of blooming going on.............color popping out all around the April garden.....
..................the long awaited Spanish bluebells are ringing around my garden. I've been tucking in the tiny bulbs for several years and now they are spreading into larger clumps. Of course the wild English bluebells I grew up with, carpeting the woods under massive oaks, are bluer. I have fond memories of tramping through bluebell woods to flop down in the middle and just inhale the deep blue perfume of Spring. Spanish ones are best for the garden here as they don't mind warm, bright sunshine, and grow tall on strong stems.
The garden is glorious with azaleas now blooming, just in time for Easter..........
............the loose and blowzy pink George Taber being my favorite.
Snowball days are history, until next Winter, but the snowball bush is covered with blooms.
Don't look too closely at that peeling painted chair - part of a set which is going to get a new paint job soon, just a bit too shabby at present!
The always bright and beautiful clematis. Somehow this one above is sporting two different colors this year. Perhaps at one point I planted two, who knows in my garden, it's full of surprises! It's climbing up the birdhouse post.............the one below is slowly climbing the front porch.
Happy gardening days to those of you who like to dig in the dirt!
