Spring Is In Bloom

Today, I’m linking up to Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, and I chose this prompt:

2.) Has Spring sprung? Post a photo journal of what Spring is looking like in your neck of the woods!

This was an easy prompt for me, since I’ve been snapping pictures all around our yard for the past couple of weeks.

These flowers are both perennials; the purple is Purple Homestead Verbena, and the pink is…. I can’t remember. If you know, please leave a comment and refresh my memory. These are in a flower bed at the curb beside our mailbox. The verbena will bloom off and on all summer, but the little pink flowers bloom briefly and are gone til next spring.

This is blue salvia, which is also a perennial. These are in front of our bedroom windows. Behind them, to the left, is a butterfly bush and, in the center, a large hydrangea that we planted several years ago.  Perhaps their blooms will be featured in a “summer” post.

Pale blue iris (can you tell that blue is my favorite color?). These are in the same area as the salvia.

Petunias from last year in an old basket on our front porch. Because of our mild winter, they survived. The blooms aren’t really as droopy as they appear in this picture. I think this was the result of some pretty strong winds we had the day before this was taken.

For the flower boxes on our deck, this year I planted burgundy striped petunias. They remind me of the purple striped ones that my mom used to plant.

And it’s officially spring when there are hanging plants on our front porch.

It’s a rainy morning here. All the plants are loving it, and so am I.

What’s blooming out your window?
