It’s 2sDay and time for photos of 2 of the same thing.
This week I have 2 photos of 2 different blooms in the garden.
These deep purple tulips were planted a long time ago and haven’t bloomed for a few years. It was lovely to see two blooms open this year.
The mountain bluet spread quite a bit from last year and promises lots of blooms. Here are the first 2 that opened a few days ago.
With the nicer weather arriving I will be spending less time posting and more time out and about. I probably won’t be joining in many of the link parties, just takes too much time to prepare and then to visit others. I’m still taking lots of photos to document growth but probably won’t be sharing till the growing season is finished. I’ll continue to keep my garden journal and add it to various posts, but this is for my reference and probably not for yours. I’m still available via email, my contact form and you can still see photos of my garden on Instagram.
