What’s blooming in the Garden?

 I can see why gardening is the number one hobby, it provides so many benefits. It is more than a hobby to me, it provides food and medicine for the mind, body, and spirit. Gardening is my connection to nature where I can recharge and rejuvenate.

Come and let’s take a walk, rejuvenate and see what else is blooming this time of year…

Forsythia is blooming and that means it is time to seed the grass. Forsythia is grown as a shrub or hedge border. It flowers first and then the green leaves grow in as a cover.

Periwinkle Vinca minor blooms early and looks good all year. It is a low growing ground cover that looks good spreading under trees or shrubs.

Glory-of-the-snow

Glory-of-the snow are spring bulbs that put on a show of blue to white colours.

Violet

Violets are one my favourite spring flowers because the leaves and flowers are so sweet and edible.

Forget-me-nots

Who can forget forget-me-nots? Their sticky buds cling to you when they turn to seed and they spread so quickly and easily they certainly do not let you forget them. They grow in cheerful clusters of white, blue and pink colours.

Thanks for stopping by the garden!

Come back soon and see what is in flower next…I have a feeling the tulips are about to bloom next 🙂
