Gardeness said...

Wow, lovely blooms for you. Our flowering pear (no fruit) has yet to pop so it's nice to see yours. And the candytuft looks great too. Yay spring.

I like the tall verbena which I call Garden Verbena. It has the same bloom color but gets to 5 feet tall. Looks really good in a cottage garden. I don't have a pear tree but sure would love one. I'm getting excited too and can't wait for my bloomers. So much work to do yet---I'm ready though.

Oh dear, you mentioning pear pies is making me look towards the kitchen, I am hungry and I am trying to be good ;) Great photos! Thanks for stopping by mine. I'm afraid I can't remember what kind of flowers that you asked about but maybe you recognize them? You've got budding Dogwoods already? Lucky you! Well it won't be long now, roll on Spring :)

Wow, I guess the freezing weather hasn't affected your flowers. They look awesome. I hope to grow more flowers this year. We'll see how I do!

Valerie said...

Have I ever told you that we have blueberry bushes. We just got them mulched the other day. Ours start bearing around June. My grandchildren love to pick them. I usually freeze several quarts and use in different recipes in the winter. I make blueberry muffins alot. You sure make me long for springtime!

You have really beautiful flowers in your garden. I'm in the Northeast and so ready for spring (for the flowers and being able to get out and photograph them!!!)

I'm jealous!! You have BLUEBERRIES!! I had the best blueberry shrubs at my old house. They produced great every year. We moved 3 years ago and I haven't had a chance to establish any here yet. Man, do I miss them!!
