Mosaic Monday - Spring blossoms


Spring is a beautiful season with the many colours of shrub and tree blossoms.  Some are fragrant and can fill the air with their intoxicating scent.
Top L to R:  Ninebark 'Gold', flowering almond, bridal wreath spirea
Bottom L to R:  Lilac, viburnum 'Juddii', dwarf crabapple 'Profusion'
It never hurts to have a few namesake plants and V. 'Juddii' is one of those shrubs that you can smell for quite a distance.  I also have the daylily 'Judith' which I'll show at another time.
Mosaics are a creative way to show groupings of plants, collectibles or a theme and each week Mary is our gracious host.  I hope you'll visit her at Little Red House to enjoy what others have put together.

  15. Oh Judith! I am just sitting here almost being able to smell your yummy lilacs -- they are some of my favorites and certainly ones i miss from my old back yard.

    Last year I found a fantastic yard with glorius bushes... i knocked on their door to see if i could clip some of theirs. They were so gracious and i loved the smell for days.

    Great capture! Claudia
