Spring is hitting us full force right now in mid April. Flowers are blooming everywhere! The mailbox garden is covered in spring time flowers and in just about every other garden is a spot of color to talk about. This post is plant and garden photo heavy so be prepared!
April Blooms in the Mailbox Garden
We'll start the garden tour with the mailbox garden! It's changed a lot over the years but still has some of the same plants like:
'May Night' salvia
Creeping Phlox with Pansies
'Homestead Purple' Verbena'Homestead Purple' Verbena is a staple in my garden and is propagated every year to spread around as a filler.
The Front Gardens
More Creeping Phlox
The Corner Shade Garden
It's a sterile hybrid of the Japanese dogwoods (Cornus kousa) and our native Cornus florida.
Ajuga - Bugle Weed
Photos From a Few Other Gardens
Red Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens)
Still kinda green!
That's it for today! I didn't take pictures of the strawberries - they deserve their own post!
