The Violet Fern

A Colorful Tale of a Garden in the Making

Bloom Day, May 2010


Here is what is blooming in my Northern NY garden this 15th of May.

Bleeding Heart
Geranium bud
Muscari Grape Hyacinth
(a little trampled from when we took down the tree)
Muscari – this is a mixed variety I ordered from Bluestone Perennials. 
I just love these little “puffs.”

Daffodil variety also from Bluestone. 
These have bloomed later than the traditional yellow.

This one is surrounded by a sea of forget-me-nots.
Wild strawberry?
Foam Flower
 Iris – these are a small/short variety from my mother.


An earlier blooming lily. 
This bud will be a deep, dark red when it opens.

Mt. Bluet – I love the buds almost as much as the blooms.

Mt. Bluet full bloom
Species tulip among creeping phlox.

These tulips are waving good bye.
