After reading many other blogs on a daily basis, I've decided to join the fun and "bloom where I'm planted." Guess I'll start simply with what's blooming around here. Above is the clematis that grows around my mail box post in the spring.
Thanks to my new blogging friend Carol over at Boxwood Cottage, I now know that this pretty red flower is an Astrantia major 'Hadspen Blood,' commonly know as Masterwort.
And of course my bachelor buttons. I love these early spring flowers, and boy are they prolific!
Atticus "helped" me take the pictures. It looks like he is sniffing the air in this photo. Maybe he smells the lilacs? And laughing. . . Atticus is always laughing.
All this before I've planted a single thing!
