  3. So refreshing -- for the bee to drink and for me to see! I am tiring of all the spring pinks and purples here, so your sunny yellow daffodils and blue forget me nots was a delight! The bee agrees.

  10. Jennifer I agree with the bees although I never see daffs, lilacs and phlox all blooming at once in my garden.

    1. Donna, The daffodils are from a slightly more shaded area and that is why they are so late into the season. The phlox is a spring blooming Woodland Phlox. The lilacs are at their peak right now and they smell divine!!

    1. Yes, it is. I have the same purple woodland phlox that you have Sweetbay and bought the white variety this spring when I saw it at a local nursery.

  14. What a stunning bouquet and all from your garden too. We too have daffodils still flowering, unheard of for nearly June! The bee couldn't resist such a pretty offering and is making the most of your beautiful flowers.

  16. How beautiful. What a delicate pastel posy. I love the nicotania and forget-me-nots, they sit so well with the daffs.xxxx

    1. Actually the flowers are lilacs and woodland phlox Snowbird. My white lilac bush had an abundance of flowers this spring and I couldn't resist picking some.

  20. I was just in Alaska and fell in love with Forget-Me-Nots. I never see them where I live - do they hate heat? They look marvelous in your photos.

    1. Forget-me-nots do like the cool of early spring here. They are biennials that are not long lived in my garden. The bloom in May/early June and then turn brown and set seed. I yank most of them out because they are really, really good self-seeders. They are also prone to mildew once they finish flowering.

  21. Hello! I was researching Gardening with dogs for a blog post that I am writing and stumbled upon your blog. I have to say that your blog is breathtaking and I am loving all of your photos! I will definitely be back to visit :)

  22. How beautiful! Those some kind of phlox in that bouquet? I couldn't tell for sure. They look like the phlox ol' peepers grows but they seemed bigger than hers - I mean, MINE - when compared to the pretty daffies. I'm gonna ask - I mean, TELL - ol' peepers to grow some white lilacs like you have in your beautiful bouquet. Those would be super-duper pretty, I think.

    Purrs,

  23. white, blue, yellow & green - what could be prettier - if I was a bee I couldn't resist either. Those are always my go-to design colours for a shaded garden. My woodland phlox is m.i.a. this year. Really miss it. It has a slight blue cast - and have it next to some small white tulips. Alas this year, tulips, no phlox. Maybe next year?
