Bleeding Hearts & Forget-Me-Nots

It's pretty thrilling when the perennials, which have braved a cold, hard winter, start to bloom in the garden. Here are some English violets my friend Peggi gave me years ago.


My Solomon's Seal, which prefers a shady spot, has really taken off this year.


A small bush of choke cherries decided to burst into bloom a few days ago. I hope I can get my hands on the fruit before the birds but I doubt it.


My forget-me-nots are just adorable and look so happy.


I think they're pretty happy too as they are starting to pop out of the garden and spread onto my lawn.


And here is a string of bleeding hearts. Violets, Forget-me-nots, and Bleeding hearts are reminiscent of Victorian times. Break out the white gloves. Tea and crumpets anyone?

Those forget-me-nots are a pain in the ass. I used to pull them out by the can full.
