April gardens: the ultimate comeback kid.
Just for fun, I wandered around my yard today and took photos of all the plants blooming.(Okay it was really a week ago. Blame in on those worms.) A spring garden is my favorite, because the plants are so forgiving. They are a little like teenagers: love them but give them space, and they become even more beautiful.
Most of these plants are shade-tolerant natives, a good choice for the hardwood forest habitat of western Tennessee. In case these plants are new to you, here are their names: wild blue phlox, woodland poppies, wisteria, wjacob's lader, foamflowers, columbine, snowdrops,spiderwort, and dogwood.
