Easter Blooms

This post, “Easter Blooms” was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 

Since today was Easter, I didn’t work in the garden.  I just walked around before we went to my daughter’s for lunch and enjoyed the beauty of nature in Spring.  Some new things were blooming.


Woodland phlox (Phlox divaricata) just starting to bloom.  These are great at the front of the border as an edging.


Yellow Shrub Jessamine (Cestrum aurantiacum) is now blooming.  I recently bought this plant for the circle garden where I have mostly yellow plants.  Butterflies are supposed to love this plant.


Lobelia is showing its gorgeous blue color.  We grow this as a cool season annual here, since it cannot take our hot summers.  It will only last until May.


This row of azaleas is showing its best color now.  These are at their peak just in time for Easter.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day.
