Spring Mixed Border

The far side of the walkway to our deck is bloom nicely this week.  It is a mix of things from our garden club sale last year and divisions from around the garden.  I have been expanding this bed, but it has too much drainage and even the mulch washes badly down the hill.  But it is in full sun, and now in its second year it is starting to look like a garden.  Here are some of the plants blooming there….
Nelly Moser Columbine…
Dark Pink and White Columbine…
Goldflame Honeysuckle…
And last but not least I have some Geums that are blooming happily.  These are so tiny they can easily get lost in my thick plantings.  But they are stunning in bloom each Spring.
There are several more things in this area. Next to bloom is Blue Baptisma, Husker Red Penstemon, Basil and various irises.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
