I know, I know....... I have been blog absentia for quite a while. So I'll just jump back in and show you the beautiful white and lavender color scheme of the early spring show out front. If you live in Oklahoma, it is well worth a drive by....
About half of the 800 bulbs that I planted were a GORGEOUS white, the first wave being White Cubed from COLORBLENDS....so beautiful and fresh and pure.....especially with the delicacy and softness of 'Emerald" creeping phlox, my beloved golden feverfew, and sweet faced pansies and violas in soft yellow and shades of lavender, both dark and light.
I am not typically one who has a lot of statuary in my garden, but I fell for this perfectly darling Easter bunny,
at Lowe's! (for just $20) just in time for Easter, and a comely addition... next to the
Red Ruby cabbages planted for their beautiful form, and foliage and seasonal message.
I love the way the phlox spills and runs down the sloping bed, eventually stopping at the brick and stone border.
Quantity is key....in the hundreds if you have the space.
and in time (and hopefully intact) for a SOUTHERN LIVING shoot on Tuesday. The wind this March has been horrific...and the tulips hate it....but they seem to be holding on...
Long lasting hellebore blooms echo the white shades.
Azaleas are waiting for the pink and sorbet tulips to echo their rosy tones.
As am I.
