Mosaic Monday #42 - Spring Blooms

Spring is evolving in leaps and bounds in the garden and a walk around in the morning with my camera produced some worthy blooms to share.
The unopened flowers of solomon's seal look like long toes dangling on an arching stem and the tiny flowers of viburnum lantana mimic a pincushion full of tiny yellow pin heads.
Forget-me-nots on the left and the similar blue flowers of a brunnera on the right.
The common lilac on the left is from a neighbour's yard but on the right is the result of 5 years of waiting for 'Beauty of Moscow' to finally flower. It was a catalogue order so you can imagine how small the shrub was when it arrived in the mail and each year the rabbits have pruned off the flowers until a few branches became too tall for them to reach.
There are a lot of pinks in the garden from the pelargonium on the top to the fading apple blossoms and a new tulip I planted last year.

  2. Oh, I love the colours of your post: white flowers, pink, lilac, light blue flowers, one more beautiful than the other.
    My flower photos today are all from the previous year(s), since the weather continues to be cool and rainy.
    Thank you, Judith, for hosting MM and have a lovely week!

  3. You have my Beauty of Moscow, I ordered one from catalog as well. and I just now remembered that it is missing. Thank you for posting these beautiful flowers and reminding me that mine is missing. I am thinking something surely took off with it. Mine would be a couple to three years old by now. Well I better look online for a new one. Have a Happy Week~

  5. Hi Judtih, that was an entertaining walk through your garden. Thank you :-D
    I have a wisteria and after 7 years it finally flowers. Photos will come soon, I am preparing a mosaic of different stages of the flowering ;-)
    Have a good week, Moni

  6. Just beautiful and look at your pink...here we are mostly purple with alliums up and opening with irises and spiderworts all over. How wonderful Beauty of Moscow finally bloomed. My lilacs are not doing as well as they have in the past....I may need to take one that is almost gone (the purple one) out and find a new one at a nursery....the white flowers but does not grow much....like this variety you have here.

  11. Judith what beauty you have in your garden, our lilacs are just starting to fade, the hot spell did them in that's for sure. But it's wonderful to see how fresh and lovely yours are. I'm always in love with the solomon's seal blossoms, and the way the water drops bunch up on the leaves. I'm so happy to be here today, and now I'm off to visit some of your links.

  18. Good morning, Judith. Your garden photos are so pretty. How great that you've been rewarded with blooms on the Beauty of Moscow. Those creamy blossoms are so pretty. Love the pink mosaic, too - actually, they are all great!

  20. So many beautiful flowers and color combinations in your mosaics today, Judith! I planted "Forget-Me-Nots this spring and they are doing so well I will plant more next year!

  21. Magnificent photos of your garden flowers. Your Beauty of Moscow has jewels of flowers, but I read you have pruning rabbits too, like in my garden the rabbits have fun but are not funny at all.

  24. These spring flowers are so delightful. Especially love the pink ones.

  25. I cannot believe that the Forget-Me-Nots and the other looks so much alike. I love learning new things from such an accomplished gardener.

    Thank you for hostinga wonderful linky party, Judith!

    WOW- so much talent making collages from the others - I really do need to work on my lazy mosaic skills, they're lacking artistry to be sure. Hugs.



    Hugs.

  29. Dear Judith!
    It will be some springflowers from Sweden too, and a lot of pansies and tulips. I saw that you also show for-get-me nots in your mosaic. Lovely skies of both for-get-me-nots and brunnera in my borders.
    Happy Monday, and have a nice week!
    Best wishes,
    AnnA

  30. Hi Judith,

    Happy Memorial Day. As always, your pics are lovely. I spent the morning taking out some forget me nots which are now very leggy. Not to worry, millions more will be back next spring, and I have seeds stuck to my pant legs to prove it. Thanks again for hostessing this blog party.

  31. Your patience paid of beautifully! This spring, I find myself paying closer attention to the blooming plants and flowers. It's amazing to see how fast they're growing.

  32. Hi Judith, what a pretty tulip! I liked seeing the forget-me-nots and brunnera side by side. They surely do resemble each other. I saw some pink forget-me-nots in a nursery this year and I thought of you. My pink ones are long gone. It's really good to see everything coming to life in your garden!
    Hugs, Beth

  33. Forget me nots are such sweet little flowers. I wonder if they can be cut for arrangements. Enjoy your week my friend and lavender Sis and thanks for the fun party! Hugs, Diane (and thanks for asking about me. I'm much better!)

  34. Oh, I so enjoy experiencing a second spring through your blog, Judith! My Solomon's Seal bloomed and left weeks ago. Haven't seen forget-me-nots yet. And this morning, I saw some hosta chomped down to the roots, so the deer are obviously out and about in the front yard. Also, you've reminded me that I need to see if I can root a lilac off the one growing at my dad's. Happy spring!

  35. Your flowers are delightful! I can almost smell their fragrance from here.

  36. Absolutely gorgeous! Judith, I forgot to tell you, I am on the board of my local hort society this year. I was thinking of you when we had our AGM - you must have been about a million of those! I'm really enjoying it.

  37. Lots of pretty flowers in your garden. We still have rain. I am beginning to sound like a broken record and a whiner, but truely we have had an unusually amount of rain. I am always partial to pretty pink flowers and yours are gorgeously photographed. I trust that you are having a good week and getting lots of gardeing done.
