Violet - Viola odorata. These pretty little flowers are coming up throughout the lawn. A lot of people consider it a weed, but I really like to see the purple color against the green of the grass. They smell nice, too.
Tulips - Tulipa spp. This is the first year we've really had tulips in the garden. Well, we had some the first year we lived here, they were a gorgeous light yellow with a huge bloom. We got to enjoy them for one day before the deer came and ate them. We have a major deer problem here Our house backs up to one of the many green belts within the city, and the deer come out at night and early in the morning. It's a big battle, we've lost A LOT of plants to the deer, and we have to be careful what we plant and where we plant it. Their favorites appear to be hostas and tulips. We even make a habanero pepper juice to spray on the plants they like the most. It works but we have to reapply it frequently. J's mom gave us about 20 tulip bulbs last fall. We ended up putting them in the front yard, as we now have a fence up and figured that would be our best bet. And yay, they left them alone! We also recently watched this program on PBS that features a really interesting history on tulips. You should watch it.
Carolina Spring Beauty -Claytonia carolina. These wild flowers were already established in one corner of the yard when we got here. They are so delicate, and I love their soft pink color.
Kalanchoe - Kalanchoe spp. We have a huge planter filled with this succulent, and it's in full bloom right now. The original plant was actually quite small and was a table decoration at our wedding shower. It's almost nine years old! It actually only starting blooming again two or three years ago.
Korean Spice Viburnum - Viburnum carlesii 'Aurora' This plant has the most amazing smell of any plant ever (in my opinion). A friend of ours has a really huge bush at her house, and after I smelled it I knew I had to have one. We strategically planted it below the bedroom window. I'm not kidding, I wish I could bottle up that scent and save for year round. Unfortunately the blooms are pretty fragile and only last about a week. It seems to grow really well here. It has almost doubled in size in 2 years.
