One of my most favorite colors of the spring garden are the blues. Unlike the reds and yellows of summer blue opens the garden with a gentle ease and look wonderful against the emerging greens of spring.
I have the pleasure of working in, and enjoying this old garden with all of it's blues and spring wild-flowers that have been collected for many years.
Quiet, yet powerful and never over whelming.
A froth of "Forget Me Nots" are allowed to become weedy. weaving in and out and in between perennials we forgive their wild tendencies.
Trillium's start off white then fade to pink.
Some area's of this garden have been allowed to naturalize giving the sense that one might be at the edge of a forest. White Violets are become a fragrant ground cover.
Other area's closer to the house give the feeling of formality.
Black Trillium's just about to open.
Geranium "Maculatum" gives color to the border of otherwise green ground covers in the front garden.
