My Flower Garden – May 2014
Spring this year had a slow start, with quite cold nights, and numerous very rainy days.
Summer is almost here, and my perennial flower garden is in full bloom.
Today I will share some pictures of my gorgeous blooms.
These blooming Columbine are from seeds my sister sent to me from Krakow, Poland.
I seeded them last year, and this spring transplanted the plants to space them out more symmetrically throughout my East-side flower patch.
These are beautiful double-blooms of light lavender Columbine.
Here is a bunch of paper-white gorgeous blooms of my Columbine collection.
These dark purple Columbine flowers are a different type, as you can see. They are not the double-blooms, but rather resembling little bells hanging downward.
These flowers are a mystery to me, since they just appeared in my garden this spring, and I almost pulled them out as weeds.
I am so glad I gave them a second chance to grow to maturity, and now am enjoying their lovely bright orange blooms.
These are the easiest flowers to maintain, since they seed themselves from year to year, and you never know where they will appear. I absolutely love their delicate blooms in many different shades.
Wouldn’t you agree that blooming plants are very therapeutic and relaxing?
I love working in my garden after work, and in my free time, just to relax my mind, and to be close with nature.
Please share your thoughts and experience about your gardening adventures.
