These beautiful blue Glories of the snow are pretty much done blooming now. They came up so early this year … like near the beginning of April instead of mid to late April like they usually do!

I have several clumps of these flowers in white, pink and this lovely blue. Each year the clumps seem to get bigger and bigger. I guess I’ll have to try to separate the clumps some time in the near future. I have a few bare areas of my garden (it’s pretty full but there’s a few empty spaces) and I could put some of the divided clumps in these areas. At least in Spring they’d be full and lush!

How is your garden doing this spring? Any flowers blooming yet?

The Sedum and other flowers that I grow in my garden are beginning to fade away as Autumn brings cooler weather, but a few weeks ago, many of my garden plants were still in bloom.

The photo above is a picture of the Sedum that I grow in my front yard. I love it’s multi-coloured tiny pink flowers with their white highlights.

As I said the sedum are fading away now, but I usually leave them in the garden through winter as they look nice dried – even when they are partially covered in snow.

Who wouldn’t be happy seeing lovely pink striped hyacinths blooming in their garden? Especially once you got a whiff of their lovely scent!

Several years ago I planted at least 100 hyacinth bulbs in colors of blue, white, pink and coral. I still have lots of hyacinths blooming in my garden each spring, but unlike some tulips these bulbs don’t seem to multiply … they eventually die off … so I don’t have nearly as many hyacinths as I used to. I have to remember to get more this fall … Hyacinths are too pretty to NOT have in the garden and if I don’t replace them soon it won’t be long before I don’t have these lovelies in my garden.

Here’s a close up of a Danfordia iris. I love these delicate little flowers.

The detail on the underside and deep within the petal is lovely. The vibrant yellow and white pattern in each petal is amazing isn’t it?
