It's been a long time since I joined any garden parties but now that the warm weather has returned, it's time to share the blooms.
Viburnum Judii, so fragrant she'll perfume most of the backyard when the pink petals emerge.
Pulmonaria 'Mrs Moon' is just starting to open her buds.
A potted hyacinth that I put in the front garden after Easter last year.
Siberian squills are naturalizing well, even to the point of creeping amongst the branches of this butterfly bush.
The Tete a Tete daffodils are the first to bloom and continue for a couple of weeks until...
the others are ready to burst forth.
Looking south along the foundation garden, it will soon be covered in tulips. I use cut up venetian blinds for stakes or reminders where seeds have been planted.
My indoor garden has a new addition that was the feature plant at Canada Blooms this year. Medinilla magnifica is from the Phillipines and breeders have worked with it to develop a houseplant.
The flowers bloom for 3-4 months and this one has started to open from when I brought the plant home.
It's not only beautiful but a real conversation piece!
