It’s been a long, cold spring, but things are finally starting to bloom in the garden.
Star of Bethlehem
There’s a bed full of echinacea next to our loading dock. I love walking by it every morning.
We’re a month late with everything this spring, because it was so cold. It’s a little scary.
Someone squished a pansy on the sidewalk.
There is a single cluster of white coneflowers in the middle of the sea of purple, outside the library loading dock.
I never have luck growing echinacea. The deer eat it. We have a lovely bed of it by the entrance to the library loading dock, though.
The babies are finally starting to bloom. There are also more day lilies budding. Hopefully our neighborhood doe won’t clear cut them.
The deer ate my hostas, but they left the day lilies. For now, at least.
I’ve always called this plant Wandering Jew, but someone pointed out that it’s spiderwort. I had no idea that Wandering Jew actually is a variety of spiderwort.
The more you know…
The dandelions have run amok, which is what they do best.
