Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

DSC_5432 Vinca peeking through a shrub.

To our place!  When we arrived here, there were so many weeds on the slope and so many of them were prickery, that I thought of it as Thistlehaven Gardens.  That has slowly changed over the 13 1/2 years we’ve been here.

There is so much going on in our yard right now, I thought I’d take pictures of everything that’s blooming right now.  As I type this up, I realize that I am missing photos of the thyme, which has tiny white blossoms, and our big euonymus shrub, which has wonderful smelling flowers that you don’t really notice because they’re the same color as the variegated leaves. We’ll see if I’m enough of a completionist to go take the photos and update this later.

If you know the names of any of the plants I haven’t named or if you see anything labeled wrong, I’d  love to hear it!

If you click on the first photo in the gallery below, you’ll see a bigger image and hopefully be able to use the arrow to move through the gallery.

    The tiny white blossoms are alyssum. My sister has it all over her yard there in Acton – it self-sows and comes back every year (as I’m sure you know). I love its sweet smell – and the bonus is that the bunnies don’t eat it!

    Lovely little walk through your flowers. Thank you! (Just today I discovered the first daffodil and tulip shoots coming up through the dead leaves here in my Indiana yard!)
