Front Yard Flower Update

I added some nice brick edging around the lawn and did some weed management. The flowers are blooming and it’s looking great.

I love the Alliums. They are like purple fireworks. The Creeping Phlox is also looking great. I’m glad I went with a single color scheme.

I’ve got a nice planter with that carries the purple over.

I had hoped my Columbines would be the purple variety but no luck there. I may move them into my shade bed in the back and replace them with purple ones out front.

They are such cool flowers though.

And the hosta and periwinkle are doing well. The periwinkle (also called Vinca) is slowly filling out though not as fast as I would like. I need to fertilize a bit to get him to spread. I love that hosta but I’m not sure the placement is best. I may move him to the back shade bed as well.

I also plated some pansies in-ground and they are flowering profusely. I love pansies. They always make me think of Alice In Wonderland.
