The violets form a carpet in this flowerbed. I know people who consider them weeds, but I just love seeing them every year.
And the white violets add a nice accent.
Grape hyacinths look amazing in masses. I am counting on these to multiply.
The Japanese maple made it through the rough, dry summer and the cold, icy winter. The reddish-purple leaves are a bright accent.
This wisteria is paler--white touched with lilac.
A preview of coming attractions! I can't wait!
An update a week later: bluebells and more wisteria....
