Here are two views of some white tulips in the river birch garden. It's disappointing that so many tulips aren't blooming - because of rabbits and the late cold snap - but the ones that did produce are very pretty.
I need to dig out my crib sheets and figure out what the names are for all of these - can't believe how lazy I am this spring!
I was having trouble getting photos of my small spring bloomers - so Mark hauled out the big guns this afternoon and took these three for me. The first two are of Jacob's Ladder - one of my favorite spring bloomers.
And this is a wild geranium that I have all over my garden - it blooms anywhere. When they're in full bloom, they're a mound of purple-y pink blooms - I just love them!
When you step out the door on the street side, you are greeted with the sweet smell of blooming lilacs - wonderful! Both of our neighbors have the old fashioned lilac bushes on our fence line. One is by the street, and one down by the lake - so we get to enjoy wherever we are in the yard! I remember the lilac bushes we had on the farm - one on either side of the path that went out to the mailbox. They are a happy childhood memory.
