I've planted bleeding heart in a few places in the garden before finding just the right spot for it. The "King of Hearts" blooms all summer long, right up until frost, as long as it's deadheaded regularly.
My redbud is like a pink cloud in the Spring! Once the soft pink flowers have faded, it has the prettiest heart shaped leaves.
A dwarf iris, transplanted from my Mom's garden last Fall, blooms for the first time. It's such a gorgeous shade of purple. Virginia bluebells bloom in clusters of soft blue flowers and spread themselves everywhere. I don't mind because they die back after blooming, leaving no trace until next Spring.
And lilacs. They never last long enough but I can't imagine a Spring without them! I've got more lilac photos to share with you in my next post.
