Living up north, I'm forced to live vicariously through everyone else's garden blog posts for a couple of months before ours really comes alive. Plus the extra altitude of living on a hill means that my garden is 2 weeks behind even my BFF's only a couple miles away. But things are finally looking pretty around here. Our peonies are just about ready to burst open.
Our rhododendron are in full bloom,
and while our hostas aren't blooming yet, the blooms are never really the star anyway. It's that lovely variegated foliage that really pretties up our backyard. Ignore that other sign of spring - the wiffle golf ball.
One of the best parts of having a garden is being able to bring cuttings inside. I filled an ironstone teapot with bluebells to pretty up my peninsula.
Thanks for popping in and bringing the outdoors in with me. I'm linking up to Between Naps on the Porch's Tablescape Thursday.
