The miracle of spring

The miracle of spring.
Maybe spring is the most fascinating season. Nature is exploding. 
Plants are coming above the ground, fresh new leaves at the trees, colored spring bulbs and flowers in the garden.
I have seen already some butterflies. Hope there is enough food enough for them in early spring. 

The Camelia, Pulsatilla, Bergenia and Geum are all plants that are flowering in spring. The Camelia, Pulsatilla and Bergenia are blooming in early spring, Geum somewhat later.


Beautiful spring flowers in the garden


The Primroses are flowering for a while now, but last week they are really coming alive, now the flowers are fully open. 
The Helleborus orientalis is already flowering since December, it flowers for a long time with beautiful bell-shaped flowers. 
And of course there are the blue grape hyacinths, so cute, real spring flowers.
Last autumn I planted a lot of the grape hyacinth bulbs in the border and now they are flowering with lovely blue little flowers.


Winter flowering evergreen plants

Viburnum tinus  Helleborus orientalis purpurascens

Because our garden is still “young”, we moved here about two years ago, it looks a bit empty, especially in winter.
Most of perennials aren’t visible anymore in winter. 

There should be more evergreen plants and shrubs and it would be very nice to have some more plants that are flowering in winter.

Last week we bought this Viburnum Tinus. an evergreen shrub that blooms with beautiful flowers from January till May.

Helleborus orientalis purperascens is also a winter flowering plant, it blooms very long with beautiful deep purple flowers.
