Garden Thursday


Hi it's me Virginger, welcome to Garden Thursday. It has been cool, cold, warmer, cooler, warmer, and soon cool if not cold again. Plus rain. Never a dull moment outside.

Yep, that is me sitting and watching the front of the house, you can see the pretty pink phlox on the ground below. This started as a tiny patch and just keeps spreading. Mum likes it and says her grandmum had a huge spot in her garden many years ago.
With the super warm weather we had a month ago, everything got speeded up, then slowed down. So now our flowering crab tree has opened its blooms, about a month earlier than usual. Mum sort of likes that as a lot of time if it doesn't bloom until May, she is busy running around, then she can't enjoy it as much. So she is enjoying it lots and lots this year.
This is our bleeding heart plant, it doesn't have many blooms this year and parts of it look like it might have gotten nipped by Mr Frost in the past few weeks. Maybe it will be better next year. Mum says she should move it to a better spot too.
So that is all for this week, enjoy your garden!

Love Virginger.



Things here are progressing faster than normal too. Of course our Mom will probably just kill everything sooner.....:::sigh:::

Your garden is progressing nicely. Our Mommy just lufs that phlox. It was near 80F here today! Lots of sunpuddles, too. xoxo

We also have lots of flowering going on in our yard. The human staff has been busy taking pictures of them too.
