Fresh Needles

Hurrah for bristling bundles of fresh needles and drooping clusters of colorful cones on my evergreen conifers! Spring is in full swing.

Weeping Norway Spruce

Juniper 'Goldcone'

Dwarf Colorado Blue Spruce

Japanese Black Pine 'Ogon'

In fact, I think I feel Summer creeping in...

Blooms for Hubby

Just a happy little combo, here. Lobelia with irish moss and a tiny korean rock fern. This planter is visible from our dining area window and is bright and cheery even when fully shaded by the carport roof in the afternoon. Hubby loves those sweet little purple blooms.

I also planted a pair of urns with geraniums, dwarf snapdragons, calibrachoa and bacopa. Hubby and I picked out these flowers together. I have enjoyed them even more because of his input and appreciation.

Gardening loves company!
