The heritage Garry Oak meadow offers the best conditions for these wee native plants to thrive.
Mr. HB and I took a drive out to have a peek yesterday and I thought it fitting that I share the pictures with you.
"Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness."
~ Eckhart Tolle ~
"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
You wouldn't want to go traipsing about in the garden though for fear of trampling the plants.
En masse they look quite stunning don't they?
"I believe in God, only I spell it Nature."
~ Frank Lloyd Wright ~
Native garden flowers naturalize in areas undisturbed by the hand of man.
Camas and buttercups
In our Humble Bungalow Garden Spring blooms are popping up at every turn.
I look on Spring as a time of renewal in the garden.
An opportunity to edit, and perhaps to add some new specimens.
The Magnolia that we purchased last year is blooming.
I love the pure white waxy petals.
I love a hellebore and have had my eye on the new burgundy black variety.
They seem to sell out as soon as they arrive at the garden shops.
Gardeners love a new varietal, something different and unusual, we may be frugal when it comes to our plants but show us something new and radically different and we open our wallets wide!
These yellow lilies are naturalizing in various beds in the garden.
We enjoyed our first harvest from our asparagus bed.
Mr. HB assembled our new deck furniture this weekend.
This is where I hope to spend many hours sipping tea and reading.
We'll certainly want to have some comfy chairs to sit on after a day spent working in the garden.
The garden posts are going to pop up more frequently as the season progresses...
hope that you will enjoy seeing what our wee plot produces.
Hope that you are well and making the most of your weekend.
