What a difference a little rain and warmth make. Spring is busting out.
Fresh green in the yard is a delight.
Giant Spiderwort (Tradescantia gigantea) is one of several different varieties available. Three were planted in 2014. They do multiply but aren’t agressive.
The bright yellow against the purple takes on an almost neon brightness.
Dutch Iris “Miss Saigon” is a refreshing type of iris.
The blue petals look like a bird in flight.
These were planted in 2016. They’re labeled as annual but bulbs are faithful to grow and bloom again. Sixteen bulbs cost $4.94. Can’t beat that.
A few blooms of Yellow Columbine, Golden Columbine, or Southwestern Yellow Columbine (Aquilegia chrysantha A. Gray) are opening. The form of these flowers are whimsical and fun. The foliage is evergreen. It’s a native, so that’s always good.
A new world each spring brings flowers blooming, birds singing, and sunshine on my back.
