Past, Present, and Future
Part 1 - The Past
Blue and pink Forget-me-nots aka Myosotis. I like how the rings at the center can be either yellow or white.
Yup, it's variegated Dead Nettle aka Lamium again, this time from underneath.
Blue/pink Forget-me-nots. I don't know how the pink and blue flowers merged, but I like it! Was that explained during one of those classes in high school? The kind your parents didn't want to help you with?
It's Myrtle (Vinca) again, too. I like how the petals are angled, making the flowers look a bit like electric fans. I also like the white star shape in the center.
Dark blue Forget-me-nots aka Victoria Dark Blue Myosotis.
Part 2 - The Present
Pinks "Brilliant" aka Dianthus deltoides. I saw only two flowers, but soon these will be in bloom all over my yard!
Variegated pygmy barberry aka Berberis thunbergii "Rose Glow". I like how the buds are dark pink on the outside and yellow on the inside.
The Sea Pinks aka Thrift "Splendens" aka Armeria maritima have arrived. I'll take it as a sign that Spring has arrived, kicking and screaming.
Snow-in-summer aka Cerastium "Silver Carpet" aka Cerastium tomentosum "Silberteppich". These can spread far and wide, but are easy to pull up.
Aubrieta "Cascade Purple" aka Aubrieta x cultorum.
Creeping Baby's Breath aka Repens White Gypsophila. This plant is a pretty good low-growing evergreen groundcover. This was the only bloom.
Not for long....
Snowdrop Anemone aka Anemone sylvestris. These are deceptively fragile-looking. These ones are underneath a bird feeder, yet come back every year.
Part 3 - The Future
A volunteer fern. I think it's a Sword Fern.
Another volunteer fern. I think this might be a Maidenhair Fern, but am really not sure.
Climbing Hydrangea aka Hydrangea anomala petiolaris. This thing grew like crazy just within the past six months!
