I wonder if we're the only ones with a grass problem. A few weeks ago it looked like we wouldn't have any grass. Todd seeded and put straw down and the new grass is coming up. Our flowers are loving the wet cool spring. Here are a few shots of what is blooming now.
Lavender in the foreground.
This is a beautiful plant called False Indigo. It's a perennial and only blooms a few weeks but it has a beautiful foliage that is great for floral arrangements.
Todd's Strawberry plants. They are blooming!
It's a little Crepe Myrtle. Very popular in Texas and the deep dry south. I will be trimming off all the green at the bottom so it will look like a little tree. That's how they do it in Texas. There are some crepe myrtle's here but they are all over Dallas. I mulched it well in the fall. They can freeze out here but if they don't it's a beautiful plant.

I love Spring. I enjoy green grass and beautiful spring flowers and the gradual warm up. The trees are all budding out and soon it will be hot as blazes here in Kentucky. So for now I am enjoying a cool and yes rainy spring. OK, we have had enough rain. Last week I took some pictures of the blooming trees downtown Wilmore. I think they are ornamental flowering cherry. Right now it is raining pink cherry blossoms but here as well as regular rain. Here is a look back.
