Garden Update – Purple
Purple is not a very popular color among many. Either you love it or you hate it. I am one of those people who loves it, so I was happy to find a selection purples throughout our garden this week.
I adore these little grape hyacinth flowers, which look like they should be growing in a fairyland. They only get about 3-4 inches tall.
I’ve been adding more vinca vines under our crab apple tree to fill in the ground cover instead of trying to keep up on the weeds and maintain fresh mulch in that spot. I love how much they spread and thrive.
In my daily walk around the yard to pull dandelions and thistles, I found these cute little purple violets growing in the grass. We used to have these in my yard when I was a kid, so it was a fun discovery, since I haven’t seen these little flowers in over 30 years.
Our magnificent purple alliums are up but they won’t bloom for another week, so I’ll share those in future post. Happy garden season, my friends.
