Just for fun yesterday, after planting a few more flowers I took a few pictures of plants blooming in our front yard. This beauty is a viburnum I got from Wayside Gardens over ten years ago. It is a shrub that is supposed to grow 8′ tall and about 6′-8′ wide. However, I determined when I planted it that I would train it into a tree shape. For six years it never bloomed and then, in 2008, it finally did. I have to keep thinning and shaping so it will keep it’s vase shape. It is well over 8′ tall and so far, shows no sight of stopping.
These are the phlox, tulips, and helebores planted in the front porch bed. This is the first year the phlox have been this big. One thing about gardening – you need a lot of patience!
