These are considered a wildflower, but I always thought they were weeds.

Today’s flower is the Meyer Lilac!

I debated doing an extra post today, but I have to share these lilacs! I love lilacs. They have the best smell and I look forward to them every spring.

We have a few bushes around the house and they are so easy to care for. They’re also really easy to propagate into new plants and they grow super fast.

They are just coming into bloom and there’s a light aroma in the air. These particular lilacs only bloom in the spring. I do wish it lasted longer! Continue reading “Flower Friday: Meyer Lilac”

As spring approaches and there’s much work to be done outside, I’m thinking about some of our landscape flowers. This is one of my favorites. It’s a type of Veronica longifolia if I’m correct. I almost thought it was a type of Meadow Sage or Woodland Sage, but I’m pretty sure I’ve identified it correctly. What do you think?

I’m getting geared up for growing season and because it’s so cold and wintry, I’m taking some time to go through some of our garden photos to get ideas. Today’s flower pic is a pumpkin blossom from our patch that also includes a bee doing its work. It was taken with my old phone and isn’t the greatest quality, but these blossoms are so huge and beautiful. It’s a wonderful sight to see first thing in the morning.
