Happy Sunday my friends. Hope you are having a wonderful Memorial weekend! Each day as I stroll the gardens I am reminded of why I love perennials so much.
If you plan it right, you will find that you have continuous color. I am always a bit sad as one bloom fades, but at the same time I am filled with delight as the new ones unfurl.
I thought I would share what new surprises are in the garden this week.
Every Memorial Day weekend the Iris put on a show. Must be why a lot of people call them ‘flags’. These old fashioned flowers were one of my sweet mothers favorites. Of course, this makes me love them too!

Remember not only do you want to choose perennials that will give you continuous color, but also your bushes and trees.
This red Honeysuckle was just planted last year. Starting to grow nicely.
The leaves of my tri-color Beech unfurled just as the Crabapple, Pear, and Redbud blooms faded. A few bushes that have taken center stage after Forsythia, Flowering Almond, and Quince are Lilacs, Bridal Wreath, and Snowball.
I love pops of white in the garden!
I hope you enjoyed a peek at this week in the garden. The next group of perennials that will bloom are probably my most favorite.
My vegetable garden is flourishing and we are now munching on radishes and lettuce. I’ll share that in another post.
I will be joining these fun parties:
