Beginning In The Middle - Of Spring

Anyone who knows me at all knows that I am endlessly inspired by my Garden!
Please come In and have a tiny glimpse...... there isn't enough room on blogger to hold ALL the pictures I could show you..... so I will start with just a few!
This is the Entrance Gate..... right at the bottom of the Back Porch steps..... on the way to the Garage. I can never resist taking a picture as I rush out the door on my way to work. This was a RARE sunny morning last week.

And here you can see from the South end looking back at the house...... just a Tiny Garden!

The tulips in their GLORY!
I LOVE the Black Magic tulips!

And the Narcissus 'Thalia', a sweetly scented double blossomed variety..... lost in the weeds...

And this lily-flowered tulip.... I cannot remember the name..... is Just DIVINE!

It has RAINED and POURED and SHOWERED and Rained some more this week!
EVERYTHING is feeling a bit worn down by the wet.

This lovely little plant is a favorite of mine, the very first plant I purchased when starting a garden SSSOOOOO many years ago! It is Phlox 'Canadensis' otherwise known as Wild Sweet William. The flowers are held aloft on delicate stems about 12 inches tall.... giving it an airy and graceful appearance. It will spread readily but needs to be kept free of competing weeds as it can be easily overwhelmed.

And the lilacs are in full bloom! What Garden in New England would be complete without a Lilac bush? These hardy survivors are an annual treat as they bloom so faithfully and vigorously Early in the season! Spring is HERE when the Lilacs bloom!
So there you are.... just a little peek at my Little Garden!
