A Spring Garden

Spring has come early to most of the country. I thought I would share some photos of flowers from my garden.

Oh, I saw the words garden and flowers and had to stop by. I love this time of year when everything is sprouting upward. You have some lovely plants. I'm not familiar with Trillium, but it looks lovely!
Happy gardening, Renee

Vonda Sinclair said...

Thanks for stopping by, Renee! Spring is my favorite time of year. Trillium is a wildflower native to this area of NC.

Those are so pretty. Our garden is starting to bloom as well. the flowers even survived the cold snap and snow we had for a day.

So beautiful, Vonda. I love them all, but love those bluebells and hostas best. They sparkle in the sunlight. The trillium is touching. Exquisite. So are the Lenten roses. Of course, I love your photography, too.

Thanks, Savannah! I'm glad your flowers are doing well despite the cold.

Donna, thanks! The bluebells and hostas are one of my absolute favorite combinations too. I have fun seeing which plants look nice next to each other. I was trying out a new camera on these. :)

You and my hubby could garden together nicely, Vonda. He has about the same flowers as you do. I am NOT allowed to touch, only look. Of course, we have snow out in the garden right now and all those early buds are not happy.

Thanks for sharing another part of your life. :)

Vonda Sinclair said...

That's too funny, Paisley, that your hubby won't let you touch the plants. I'm sure you have a green thumb if only he would give you a chance. :) Sorry to hear about the snow. I'm hoping we don't get any more. Thanks for checking out my pics!

So colorful, Vonda. Can't wait until New Hampshire catches up. We have forsythia and daffs now, and the trees are starting to bloom, but not many flowers yet.

Ella Quinn said...

This reminds me of my gardens in England and Germany. Very pretty. Thank you.

Such beautiful flowers(and photos) I love the trilliums(they are the provincial flower for the province of Ontario where I live. Absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks, Pat! It's been so unseasonably warm the plants and flowers are a month early in some cases. It seems we really rushed through the Forsythia and cherry tree blooms here. The crab apples are also blooming now.

Thanks, Ella! I consider that a major compliment. England and Germany have a great climate for beautiful gardens.

Dory, how cool about trilliums being the flower of Ontario. I didn't know that. They must be native to the whole east coast in the woodlands. They are among the most beautiful of the wildflowers. Thanks for taking a look!

Your flowers are always so beautiful. I'd love to have a garden like that but I have a brown thumb. Luckily, I can enjoy yours - virtually, anyway. Scary-looking spider. :-)

Vonda Sinclair said...

Thanks so much, Vanessa! I bet you could do container gardening or maybe arid gardening. I agree about the spider. :)

I love them all:) I don't believe have ever seen a Lenten Rose... what a beautiful addition to any garden. Mind you I am so far north...probably native to your area. Thank-you Vonda!

Vonda Sinclair said...

Thanks Jennifer! I'm not sure how far north you are, but from what I can find out Lenten rose is hardy to zone 4. That's around southern Maine, southern Montana and southern North Dakota. I love Lenten rose. It's one of my favorite plants. It blooms in January and February and keeps the "flowers" on for a few months. It reseeds and provides lots of baby plants I can move to other areas.

I don't know that I have a favorite garden flower. I do love carnations in cut flowers, so I guess I'd go with them, but there are so many pretties out there, it's difficult to choose.

Speaking of gardening, my landscaper is here to discuss expanding my flower bed. Gotta run...

Oops - forgot to say - lovely pics and fab flowers!
