So after posing the question online it seems like you folks would be interested in what’s blooming in my yard. One thing I struggle with still is looking at things in neighbor’s yards, thinking to myself “What is that?” and attempting to describe it to the nursery staff unsuccessfully. Having a plant’s name really helps.
I’ve already missed the very early spring things – crocus and snowdrops. Next were the daffodils and tulips. Now we’re in a third phase. More diverse selection of things that’s for sure.
I have a lot of shade in my yard – we have nearly a dozen trees on our quarter acre property – so sometimes plant shopping can be frustrating. Over the past few years I’ve learned to adapt to flowering plants that like partial or full shade. All is not lost if you have a shady yard!
We do have a few sunny spots too, so I’ll be posting a variety of plants.
