White

When I came home from work Thursday, I was greeted at the front door by the sweet smell of lily of the valley.  The lily of the valley share their space with several daffodils which doesn't affect the beautiful scent at all.




In the back yard, the bridal wreath spiraea is exploding with blooms.  The shrub is kinda tucked behind an arborvitae but it spills out beautifully.

  3. I just discovered your blog. I love your tag line "removing sod since 1998" - I've been removing sod since 1992. Lawn is so over rated :)

  4. I love lily of the valley! It tries to grow here, but never blooms. We rented a place once that had lots of it and it smelled so good.

    We rented a house with lily of the valley once too. It was the first time I'd ever seen it. I remember taking the blooms to work and asking everyone there if they knew what it was. One lady did. When we bought our house, I found a little corner to tuck some in.

    Thanks for visiting the garden. I'm planning to take out a lot of sod this year. I hope you'll check back to see the progress.

  8. Your bridal wreath looks lovely. Mine only has a few blooms on it. We transplanted it last year from the front yard to the back...so I think it just might need another year to settle in. It doesn't get as much sun where it is now either, which could be the problem. My lily of the valley had very few blooms, too...I transferred that last year to a different part of the garden. It had overtaken the whole area where it was and I wanted to plant other things there so I took out a few and transplanted them. I guess they just need another year or so to spread more...
