Spring Garden – New Additions

Pansy - 2012This year’s early, and quite warm spring, allowed extra time to spend in the garden.

Last fall I divided most of my perennials, to share with family and friends, so this spring I was very busy rearranging my east side flower patches.

I will share new pictures once all the plants get bigger, and begin to blossom.

My sister also loves gardening, and always surprises me with new seeds of popular European flowers.  I am anxiously awaiting this year’s flowers from those seeds, as one of them used to be my mom’s favorite.

Oh yes, there will be more pictures.

My daughter is quite a gardener as well, and this year she started a raised bed herb garden, which I will  share with you in future posts.

The new addition to my west side flower patch is a new flowering plant, called Anemone.

Anemones are perennial plants, hence planted last fall, and are blooming since early May.

Aren’t they gorgeous?

I also added some Pink , White, and Yellow Tulips, to this year’s spring flower beds.

Here is a close up of the Pink Tulip, slightly injured by an unexpected frost.

White Tulips - 2012

The White Tulips, my new addition as well, are just as gorgeous.  They have much fuller blooms than the regular tulips, and I totally adore them.

Yellow Tulips - 2012

The Deep Yellow Tulips are also amazingly beautiful.

These Irises are two years old now, and doing very well by producing larger and fuller blooms.

I hope you enjoyed the display of new additions to my spring garden.

Enjoy your gardening, and share your thoughts and pictures.
