spring has sprung

Today I have been playing with picasa again using some of the latest photos I took of the garden so thought I would hare them with you here.

 most of these I can recognise but on the bottom collage the middle one on the top row is baffling me. It has come through from the next garden and is spreading at a rapid rate, however it is covering up the soil in front of the dreaded privets which surround the whole garden back and front so I am nuturing it and will move some to other bare patches as even if it is a weed it is ground covering and very pretty, hopefully it will see off the dandelions too.The bush next to it is so very pretty when in full flower, just coming into flower now but can not for the life of me remember what it is called,   can anyone else come up for the name of either of these please.

You are doing right to transplant those pretty little white flowers. We have privets in our garden, we planted them, and they are bushes. Yours must be something else, when it dreadens you.

Sorry, I can offer no help in identifying the plants. However, they are very pretty and you must get a lot of inspiration from them.

Margie, the white flower in the middle is Gallium odorata or Sweet Woodruff. Sorry I can't quite see the shrub on the right clearly, and the leaves are really foxing me - have you any more clues? is it fragrant and how big are the flowers?

Starr White said...

Wonderful photos, Margaret! So glad you are enjoying sunshine and flowers :)


Very Pretty Blooms, Margaret. Hugs Judy

Wow, spring is really at your place right now!

Your flowers are looking wonderful. Keep that sweet woodruff-it's a lovely plant. Happy gardening.

Annet said...

Pretty flowers, Margaret. Love the tulips!

Mary Ellen said...

Yes, that does appear to be woodruff. It is the flavoring in German Maiwein. They also use it in green jello. Lovely flavor, although the green plant itself has no taste or flavor that i can perceive. It all comes out in steeping.

Glorious Spring and all of the beautiful flowers that blossom. Your collages of them are joyful. We had a day of sprinkles and very cool temps. Odd for Memorial Day. Spring Sunshine Smiles...

Beautiful flowers in your garden Margaret! They are such lovely joyous gifts, aren't they :)

Pippas quilts said...

Love spring flowers although a little late this year a joy to see. Not to good on identifying plants sorry.

DIAN said...

Margaret I love the collages and the flowers are lovely. Very much a spring time collection.

Jillian said...

So lovely to see Spring arriving in your part of the world as Winter arrives here. Our leaves are still falling - but I'll hold out for blooms like yours in a few months.
