Fertilizer Friday: What is blooming now

Today I wanted to show some of the plants in my garden that are in bloom right now so I'll be joining Fertilizer Friday @ Tootsie Time .

I've been meaning to share some blooms for quite a while now but this being Quebec we've been having some crazy Spring weather!



Oops! I managed to take a pic of a dandelion! This is a rescued plant that didn't have a tag so I don't know what it is...I have 5 now. After the flowers die down, the plant is just green but still lovely!

 
I love creeping phlox and this pale lavender shade is just charming. I planted it  near the shabby stone wall so it would lazily cascade over...

I had a big bug infestation 2 years ago and the little !"/$%?& killed nearly all my irises. The ones I managed to save are starting to flower.


Here's some perrenial thlaspi, forget-me-not and a mystery flower in the back. I got the mystery one when I purchased some phlox through a catalogue. I had extra roots in the bag, which I naturally assumed were phlox too...Oh well!

I hope you all have a great day and that this weekend's weather will be nice enough so you can get dirty in your garden!

Wonderful blooms!! I just put out some new plants and hope they 'take' for a butterfly garden. I also did some containers for my deck. Guess I should share my photos.

Wow! Everything looks great! I can't believe how much color you have going on in the garden. Even your Irises have popped

Your mystery plant is spurge. It will grow into a beautiful mound. I love them, very low maintenance. I have been waiting for my plants to finally start blooming. Spring is finally here.

Lovely!

Yup, I concur: your rescued plant is Spurge. It's one of my favorites too because of the beautiful neon color and the contrast with the leaves.

Your garden is lovely.
