I'm a little late getting this up since I was on DD duty today and we have family visiting. I'm trying to squeeze it in now while I have a chance and hopefully I can go back and edit this post with some photos soon.
We have a medium size lilac in the back garden that's just starting to bloom. It has mauve flowers and smells wonderful.
2. Creeping Phlox
My grandmother has always had these in her garden and I love the look of them. The flower is very similar to the lilac in colour and it's spread a little bit since last year. That was the first year I planted it.
We have violets in a few different garden areas in our yarden. The deep purple colour is gorgeous and they're spreading well.
They're ubiquitous this time of year. DD and I were playing tickle with them the other day. I would tickle her chin and she would tickle my legs.
The clover is blooming as well which might explain the rabbits. :)
6. Wild Strawberries
These were almost taken over by raspberry brambles when we bought the house 2 years ago, but with help from my mother we were able to pull them all out and keep the wild strawberries.
7. Cherry tree
We have a few in the back yard and one is covered in blooms! They're beautiful and I hope I can get a photo up later.
8. Crab apple tree
This tree didn't have any fruit last year, and I don't remember if it flowered. Does anyone know if they always have fruit if they flower?
9. Lily of the Valley
We have to be careful with this one since they're so poisonous. They're cute and lovely and smell divine, but I don't want DD to eat any by accident.
This is almost done. I had forgotten we had any daffodils actually until this one came up this year. I hope it does as well or better next year too. It had a great show a week ago.
Honourable Budding Mentions: Peony
The house came with a great peony bush in the front garden. Last year it was absolutely covered in bright pink blooms and looked fantastic until a rainstorm completely flattened it. Hopefully I'll get a photo this year before that happens.
We have a ton of irises this year and I think we'll have more flowers this year than we did last year (7). We moved the irises from the side of the house (shade) to the front where it has more direct sun. They bounced back well last year and grew like crazy. They're doing it again and I hope they flower more.
Don't forget to check out what Kate has in her list today, you won't regret it. :)
