Three weekends out of town, a death in the family, and the rush of Spring chores - that's my excuse for not posting since Easter.  The flowers in my garden were out a full three weeks early this year.  On April 24 I opened my garden to my garden club members with all of the Spring bulbs in full bloom, along with bleeding heart, pasque flower, Virginia bluebells, and the list goes on.  Except for the bleeding heart which is still in bloom, a full array of new flowers are now out.  Enjoy this little sampling of my May 17, 2012 garden.   To get a better look, click on the picture.  If you're wondering about a specific plant, just ask!
