I came home from work last night to find that my bridal wreath bush had burst into bloom.
I love this old fashioned shrub for its quaint white blooms and the fact that it looks most beautiful when left to go a bit wild. Jim and I prefer our garden in a slightly wild state.
We inherited a lot of perennials when we moved, most of which I don't even know what they are or what they are called. I think this one is a white bleeding heart.
Here's one I don't know, but it's quite lovely.
This is the back garden we managed to put together this weekend, containing tomatoes, peppers, zucchinis, basil and some flowers, including marigolds because I understand they keep pests away.
My tulips are almost done, but these spectacular fellows are holding on.
I wouldn't want a whole bed of these, but as a show piece, they are very impressive.
