I was just saying on my gardening blog what a beautiful Spring it’s been here in Toronto and how well my garden is doing!
It looks like I didn’t lose any plants during the winter, which is a good thing since our winters can be quite harsh and it’s not uncommon for me to lose at least one rose if not more.
Right now the tulips are the stars of the garden. I have at least 7 types in bloom right now, with more to come by the end of May. The Daffodils are also blooming well, whereas the hyacinths and Glories of the snow are just about finished for the season.
One Spring flower that I always enjoy seeing each year are the Muscari or Grape Hyacinth. They’re tiny plants, only about 8 inches tall, but their flowers are so lovely and colorful.
The flowers are purple, but they almost have a deep blue tone to them in this photograph, don’t they?
The majority of my tulips are white, but I also have several vibrant purple, orange and yellow tulips scattered throughout my garden. What I don’t have are very many red tulips. Here’s a picture of one of my lovely red tulips:
Perhaps next fall I’ll buy more tulips bulbs and try to get more red ones. They certainly look beautiful in front of spring green plants.
How is your garden or yard doing this Spring?
