Blooming Weekend

During winter months annuals are sometimes needed to add color to the garden.  The ones we plant in the winter are short lived here and as soon as the summer heat and humidity come, they are gone.

Here are a few of the tough and true garden perennials putting out some blooms to keep the “winter” blues away.

    It’s lovely! So much of this (but especially scabious, violas and poppies) forms the background of my summer garden!

  4. The only color in our garden right now is the occasional glimpse of purple ornamental cabbage uncovered by a shovel. *sigh* I will look at your post and dream of spring. 🙂

  5. Aww…such pretty, colourful sights! Thank you!
