Pulmonaria

Pulmonaria (Bethlehem sage)

Although this is a photo from four years ago, Pulmonaria is in bloom in my garden at the moment. The blossoms are tiny so barely noticeable...especially since the garden still needs a major cleanup. (I have more than one garden and another one needs refurbishing even more , so that's the one I'm currently working in.)

I like the way the blossoms open pink and turn blue as they age.

They are very delightful. Very pretty, I wonder if they have a strong, vibrant scent, or not?

It is a pretty plant although never my favorite---I think because of the spotted leaves. Isn't that crazy!!!

Oh BTW--We are getting a green house. Only well I say only in case some have larger one--8x12 but it's will be big enough for me.

I like the color. Methinks your gardens are a full-time job! Yikes!

Re your comments: I thought sure you'd know the name of that bird; and I'm always being watched, usually by the NSA. :)

A cheery little flower that I like very much, for its foliage as well as its flowers. If you have it in your garden though, you very soon have a lot of it!

Lungwort is always a brilliant addition to the garden, yours is beautiful. =)

visualnorway said...

We have the same one at our summer cottage - and both our gardens need serious work. Any time to spare when you are finished with your own?

Pulmonaria is so pretty, and it can be a really good food source for bees early in the season.

That is very pretty.

Wonderful color.

Gunilla B├Ąck said...

Beautiful! I love the colours.

Car2 Heaven said...

Ah, these take me back to when my father had these in his garden. When he passed on I continued with them & even planted new ones, but tree shade prevented them from looking their best. Just love the colour variations. Your photos are wonderful & inspiring. At least someone else is photographing East Gwillimbury besides me,(& doing a very good job!)

EG, this is just gorgeous! I love the colors.

Hi John, I think my climate doesn't encourage Pulmonaria to spread. I wish it would. :))
