Thursday’s Blossoms


John Lubbock starts off this Thursday with his poignant quote. “What we see depends mainly on what we look for.” On this overcast morning, why not look and see what’s of seasonal interest and in bloom.

This ‘Purple Gem’ Rhododendron makes a splash of color and what I like most about it – it’s a dwarf. So it works in nicely with any planting combination.

Another favorite in blossom right now is the Dicentra spectabilis 'Alba' Bleeding Heart. What’s not to love about these dainty white heart-shaped flowers growing in a shade garden? The backdrop, of course, is an Epimedium.

And why overlook something as simple as Violets and Dandelions battling it out? There’s something to be said about inspiration to create another yellow and purple flowering plant composition. 

 And why is texture important to your garden? Here’s another reason to love this Epimedium/Fern combination.

But the best part about May is when the apple blossoms come to town. This Malus ‘Donald Wyman’ flowering crabapple is showcasing its beautiful blossoms right now.

So if you’re in search of what to plant in your garden, remember John Lubbock’s words. “What we see depends mainly on what we look for.”
