Garden Delights - Look What's Blooming Today

As I wandered through the garden today I was delighted to see the purple sand cherry blossoms.
I had forgotten how pretty they were and they brought a smile to my face.

I then wandered on and was pleased to spot this little white pasque flower. It blooms a little later than the purple one which is past its prime as seen in the following photos.

I should not have said "past its prime". I take that back because once the flower fades this beautiful seed head remains for weeks. I think it's as beautiful as the flower.

The creeping veronica has also come into flower. This plant is such a pretty blue 
which is hard to find in the garden.

As I moved on I spotted these tulips that I did not plant. Thank you squirrels, good job! 

One of the things that I enjoy so much about gardening is that every day it changes and brings new delights. If I am gone a few days I cannot wait to tour the garden to see what has gone on while I was away. 

I wonder what she is thinking. 


  1. The creeping veronica is very sweet. You even got a tiny bee in there.
    As for the cat..."my gardener does a good job here." :-)

  2. I like your intro. My name is Laurrie and I am a gardener too.

    I love the way you presented your pretty May colors and forms. That blue veronica, oh my. Spring really can have such intensity and richness, not just pale pastels.

    (the cat is thinking "you're photographing dumb flowers when you have ME as a subject? pfft")
