Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger and Glimmer.

Lots of good things this week. New stuff blooming and growing. The bleeding heart plant mum got last year survived and is growing just fine.
 Here is a closer picture of the cute little flowers.
 Lilacs getting ready to open. Mum was sniffing at them and going AHHHH.
 Our red-twigged dogwood shrubs are leafing out just fine and the one that mum transplanted to the front is looking good too.
 Wild violets growing along the back fence with the ground cover. Mum says ground cover stuff is good. It helps keep the weeds down.
Trout Towne can stop reading here.

We saw a cool trifecta of fevvers this past weekend. Mr Oriole showed up, Mr Red Breasted Grosbeak visited and we saw our first hummerbird.

Hope your garden is doing well too. Love Virginger and Glimmer.

Hi Ducky! Mom has all of those plants in her garden too! The bleeding hearts, the red-twigged dogwood, and the violets. I will have to blog about them. Thank you for reminding me.

I thought my bleeding heart was dead last year too, and am very happy that it's blooming now. Our lilacs are open and they smell heavenly.

So beautiful! Your garden flowers are so beautiful. Our mom misses our bleeding hearts after the sprinkler installer dug them up but maybe she'll get more for next year.
