April is a month of renewal in the garden, I love to walk around, find those early bloomers and marvel at the beauty of it all. The weather has been completely unreliable here in Western Pennsylvania, we go from 60 and 70 degrees to days were we barely have gotten out of the 30’s. But plants continue to grow and are almost determined to fulfill their mission. Here is what is blooming in my garden:
This last plant was a throw away that a friend did not like: Leopard’s bane, I rescued a small cutting and three years later, it has formed an emerald green ground cover in deep shade. Oval, highly serrated leaves, form a thick mat were nothing else grew in the past. In April, an additional bonus, clusters of daisy like flowers floating on long stems, that last for weeks!
