I need to pull out my red-white-and blue bin but for now I put up this new star piece I purchased at Wal-Mart this week. Hope all of you in the U.S.A. have a meaningful Memorial Day Weekend.
Meanwhile we are still being surprised by flowers popping up on our property.
Angie from Letting Go of the Bay Leaf let me know that this plant is a Columbine. Here are some of the color varieties we’ve enjoyed this week.
Such a pretty delicate flower. This combination above might be my favorite.
White Bleeding Heart.
We are still waiting on the peonies to burst forth and we have a nice little patch of irises that should burst forth soon.
We had some storms pass through this afternoon and we are expecting more rain tomorrow. When the skies clear I’ll head out and take photos of more surprises on our property.

Really like the stars on your door. : )
I like your Americana stars on the back of your door, Ellen. The different varieties of columbine are delightful in your garden. It would be exciting to discover what’s next in a garden new to you!
Columbine is such a pretty and old fashioned flower. It’s been a few years since I had them.. I should get some again. It must be exciting to see what pops up next!
…I haven’t seen columbine yet this year, perhaps soon.
I love columbines. Mine is creamy yellow center with blue outer petals. I’ve never seen a white bleeding heart. So pretty! I have a “Gold Heart” bleeding heart bush I planted last year. I thought it was a goner but all of a sudden I see some stems poking through. Happy Memorial Day to you
Susanne, creamy yellow and blue sounds delightful to me!
What sweet surprises..
Hello, the Columbine is so pretty. I love all the colors. Pretty blooms. Happy Memorial Day weekend to you and yours!
These are some of my favorite spring blooms. Thanks for sharing the photos and I look fwd to more!
I had Columbine pop up in my yard a few years ago and had to ask what it was. I absolutely love it! We have pink and purple in our yard.
How lovely to find these flowers on your property. Columbines, peonies and the white bleeding hearts are pretty late Springtime plants. Your star decoration on your door looks welcoming. Wishing you a meaningful Memorial Weekend.
Looking forward to further revelations of loveliness from your property.
I saw the good news about Jaymison, and will keep praying. That photo was soooo cute too!
Stars on your door and stars in your crown. Thank you for remembering!
