Blooming now….

The Spring garden is entering another stage. The early Spring bloomers are done but a few are hanging on!

There are still a few azaleas blooming.

The coral Honeysuckles are blooming, too! They are native and are not aggressive like the Japanese Honeysuckle. This variety is Major Wheeler. It was discovered in the wild in North Carolina but blooms throughout the Summer.

Snowball viburnum is one of my favorite shrubs. My grandmother had a very large snowball bush on the North side of her house in Beaufort, North Carolina.

The oxeye daisies are beautiful along the 100 foot wildflower curb garden and are the first of the wildflowers to bloom.

And new bronze-colored fronds are unfurling from the Autumn Ferns.

And Gus has a new chew rope. Let’s see how long it takes him to unravel it!

The last rope lasted a few days!

  2. There all beautiful but it’s nice to see the iris. They are far ahead of ours, which probably won’t bloom for at least 2 weeks.

  3. Gorgeous. The honey suckles are so beautiful. You know what I find amazing…even house plants in rooms with artificial light know that it’s spring and know when to bloom. It’s like they have an internal clock. Do you know why that is?

  4. Wow! We’re still at the daffodils, early spring bulbs, and very early tulips here. And some of the natives, pussy-toes, violets, bluets, trilium, trout lilies.
