This week my garden is starting to blossom everywhere I look! All the rain mixed with sunshine this past week has coaxed my little friends to finally show themselves. Here are a few pictures of some of my easy to grow garden girls!
Perennial mallow-reseeds easily and doesn't need staking! Sweet pink flowers appear in mid -May. In the background is a nice climbing rose I have had for years...it blooms again in the fall and smells wonderful.
The oakleaf hydrangea is just starting to flower..I just love these white spikes in full bloom! My plant has taken several years to establish but well worth the wait.
Above- Spirea with fluffy pink clusters of blooms...
and a real favorite of mine-perennial geraniums-'Johnson Blue' is the variety...I have had these plants for over 10 years and divide them every few years to keep them going! What a easy plant to grow. This is one of the earliest bloomers in my yard.
Santolina with fernlike gray silver foliage is a pretty plant even after the spring flush of yellow flowers are gone.
My 'Nikko blue" hydrangeas are loaded with blooms this year...I love cutting them and making flower arrangements with these beauties. I should have plenty this year for cutting and drying!
Our Oklahoma state wildflower is the 'Indian Blanket' so showy, bright and best of all -reliable.
Have a great Outdoor Wednesday! Thanks to our wonderful hostess Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. I'm on my way to check out all the beautiful posts!
