Weekend Blooms


More and more of the spring flowers are starting to bloom and it is such a treat to see them when I wander out the front yard. It was especially nice to see the bergenia this afternoon as I attempted to dig up the gravel pathway by the front door to get all of the grass and dandelions out that had made the rocks their new home. A little bit of beauty in a sea of weediness :)


The cowslip primula is one of my all time favorites with their big droopy clusters of yellow flowers and the smell is amazing. All you have to do is touch them and their sweet fragrance fills the air.


I have no idea what the name of this peony is but it pops up every spring. My mom planted it here nearly 30 years ago and it returns faithfully every year :)

Double Primrose

A pretty little pink double primrose. This one is a volunteer that popped up in the driveway :)

Therese Bugnet

And finally Therese Bugnet. I know there aren't any flowers on it yet but it won't be long and there will be masses of deep pink roses all over. She's super hardy to! You can really expose her to some harsh elements and it comes back just as full as the year before :)

Happy blooming Sundy *grin*
