Golly, we're all glad to have you visit--even the Wedgewood Blue Dutch iris which seldom blooms but makes me very happy when it does!
I'm happy that the sea thrift is flourishing amidst crocus leaves and yet another hollyhock.
It's been a great year for dandelions this year--too windy to spray them without poisoning the other plants. See them hiding there amidst my violas and creeping phlox? Grrrr.
These frilly deep lavender-and-white bearded iris successfully compete with the pink flowering dogwood for attention.
On your way up to Meadowsweet Cottage's front door you'll be greeted by these bluebells. They were one of the first bulbs I planted here and have flourished. I'm in the process of spreading these prolific little ladies into our backyard too.
You might get sidetracked by the scent of my favorite lilac before you reach the porch. That red-violet color just makes my heart go pitty-pat.
I think my Nelly Moser clematis is my show-stopper though. Those blooms are huge!
I guess you could say that when my garden blooms each May, life feels just ducky.
Come back and visit my forest garden tomorrow! Or drop by An Oregon Cottage and see some other gardens (even some that have had real live warm weather).
