purple reign

After the daffodils ended (and everyone here in South Jersey agrees it was a great year for daffodils), our yard started blooming purple.

DSC_0033 (2)First to arrive were the Johnny Jump Ups.  That’s what I have always called them, but I’d like confirmation. When I look them up I’m not sure. Are they Violets? Violas?

DSC_0037This stunner is getting everyone’s attention this year. I think it is phlox.

DSC_0032I call these Star of David. I’m sure they have another name. They look white in the  photo, but are a pale purple. (I am realizing that my “knowledge” of my plants is mostly lure passed down. I actually have no idea what is going on out there.)

  1. Your garden looks very tidy and it there is going to be a colour wave I love when it’s that blue purple hue! Gardening with daughters is a lovely occupation – gardening alone is also lovely I find. I’m glad to hear you are having a colourful spring ❤
