Leveling Up this Spring!

Spring 2012 sprang up early & with it came many garden surprises!  Many of the plants that took a hiatus last year because of the scorching hot, dry Summer decided to come back in full force this year.  The Irises, plenty, the Lavender, fragrant, the Creeping Jenny, thicker, the Blue Hydrangeas were bountiful & I somehow managed to magically end up with a few more Ms. Huff Lantanas then I remembered planting!

  The Irises definitely appreciated the mild Winter & the early Spring!  They looked like billowy clouds!

The Creeping Jenny did a great job holding back the Wild Strawberry vines & pesky weeds!

This Hydrangea was bought last year & did poorly, but this Spring it is covered with beautiful cottonball-like blooms of blue!

Lavender in early April

Since the weather was cooperating I thought a few new additions to the garden would be quite beneficial.  Loropetalum, Wax Begonias, Petunias, Salvia, Blue Bachelor Buttons & a hardy helping of Dianthus capped off this years garden purchases.  Once again . . . LEVEL UP!
