The first flower to bloom in my gated garden, which is across from the shade cave and in full sun, are the bleeding hearts. It seems to me that there is something very spiritual about that. Did you know that the heart muscle is the first part of a human being that forms in the womb? I have two bleeding heart plants in the gated garden, one white and the other pink. These plants are gone when spring is over. This full sun garden has a "plants mentioned in Shakespeare's works theme" just because, why not?
In an effort to attract butterflies and humming birds to an area I can see from a window, I planted some butterfly bushes and bee balm. I added a hummingbird feeder and a bird house and I'm sure I'll get a little resident there.
Today I put down a lot of grass seed to fix the lawn from the winter damage and weeded a bit. Next week I'm going to mulch. By then I should have more beautiful flowers to show you, including my little rose garden.
