The bleeding heart are always pretty. They're almost done this year.
The lily of the valley is blooming in the back yard.
The wooded area behind our back yard is full of money plant. Right now it's all purple blooms, but in the Fall there are silvery discs on each plant, which is how it gets its name.
Here's a closer shot of the money plant.
I love lilacs because they smell so good! They are almost done for this year.
In our front walkway area the dwarf lilac is also blooming. It's a pretty little bush with flowers that look and smell like regular lilac, but about half the size.
The two flowering bushes are Verbena's. They are different varieties and we enjoy both, but the smaller bush flowers in a unique way.
You can see the Verbena flowers here - they grow along the top of each branch which really shows off the flowers.
We're really enjoying seeing this new bed grow this year. Bob built this gate and put it and the plants in last year. It's nice to see all the plants growing happily there.
Over the weekend, the Siberian Iris opened up, and if you look at the trellis behind them, you can see some white Clematis blooms.
The Siberian Iris are one of my favorite Spring flowers.
Here's one of the Clematis blooms.
Last but not least is this Weigela bush. Both the leaves and flowers are so pretty!
"Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor
or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his
splendor was dressed like one of these."
