In the gardens

Last week I showed you what was blooming in our flower gardens. This week it seems that we made a leap from early spring to late spring. All the trees have leaves on them, creating a green hue to everything inside our little home. This week we have so many new flowers to enjoy.

stone seatCome have a seat with me and see what’s blooming.
dark purple lilac purple lilac white lilacThree different colors of lilac. I love them all and can’t decide which is my favorite.

bleeding heartThe bleeding heart is growing and blooming, but it’s still growing. Truly, this is the largest bleeding heart I’ve seen. It must love it here.

phlox and rusty hen phloxThere are small mounds of phlox blooming. The pale purple and a white (that I forgot to take a picture of) are the first to bloom. A pink phlox will be following shortly.

wild strawberry forget me notWild strawberries mingle with forget-me-nots along the wooded paths, looking much like they must disguise an entrance to a fairy world.  I’ve looked, but I haven’t found it yet. 🙂

wild bleeding heartNot to be outdone by the bleeding heart, these wild bleeding hearts grow along the stone paths. So much smaller, but just as lovely.

And finally, this week, these three shrubs are blooming, but I don’t know what they are. If you have any idea let me know. I haven’t had a chance to look them up yet.

Thank you for visiting my garden again this week. I’ve been wanting to document what blooms and when for a while. Perhaps a weekly blog post is exactly the way I should do it.
