My Garden in the Spring

It has been over a month since I posted and I just don't know where the time has gone. I have been in the garden alot, but have barely touched the vegetable patch. Many of my spring flowers are blooming and I thought I would make a cup of tea and sit down and share them with you.

My sunny south side has mt Miss kim lilac in bloom and it has the sweetest scent. I have my bedroom window open and can smell it upstairs.
I think the colombine look like fairy flowers. I have several different colors scattered around the yard.
The purple iris are in honor of my Nana and my Mom. I always think of them when I see them and I have planted several just for the two women I love so much.

                                                                     A pretty all white colombine.

An all white iris.

                                          The pink clematis loves this spot and has done so well.

Another clematis called Nellie Moser. I cut this one way back last fall so it is low to the ground this year.

My earliest blooming day lily in sunny yellow. I have divided this many times and there are lots of bright yellow spots along my garden path.
This was the tinest shrub when I planted it and now many years later, she is a beauty for sure.

Mother nature has her own ideas where things should grow. I love the lady slippers she put here.

Now for the promise of more to come. My peonies.....

and, darn I forgot the name of this.
So do share with me what is blooming in your garden now?

I'm green with envy. My garden needs a little attention but since I did major clean up last fall much better then normal.
btw I think it's valerian root. It pops up everywhere and grows really tall. You will know if you smell the root....stinky!

Looks like spring is in full bloom. Love the irises and I think they are in the right location. I haven't seen a lady slipper since I was a kid. I am so glad you post your pics for us to see...
