Here are some pictures of what is growing in my New England garden this time of year. April is early Spring and planting anything outdoors that is susceptible to frost, in this area, is not advised until at least late May. These are the perennials that are blooming or just beginning to grow.
Did you know that chives will come back each year? I’ve already used some in my cooking, and the clump is looking good already. I need to get parsley soon. That has become one of my favorites for the garden, and it can take the cold.
The peonies and bleeding hearts are sending up shoots and the hostas are just pushing through the ground. The Coral Bells kept many of it’s leaves and new ones are growing from the center.
Not much is happening with my hydrangeas yet, but the macrophyllas seem to be starting with leaves and growth more so than the paniculatas.
I had wanted this to be a slide show, but as usual, I can’t figure out how to make that happen. It seems that even though I use WordPress for most all my blogs, each theme works differently and I can’t see a slide show option for this one.
So enjoy the big photos instead.
I have some ♥ Blue Flower Pictures at a previous post.
