What's Blooming In Spring

The purple blossoms are coming into their own.  Sweet alyssum, above, will reseed profusely, but each succeeding generation will be lighter and lighter until they bloom white.  The rose purslaynes, below, are super easy to grow - you can actually take a cutting from a mature plant, remove the lower leaves until you  have a stem and stick it in the ground.   With water and a mild fertilizer, it will grow.

The camera caught the existence of little hairs on the penstemon blossoms that aren't visible to the naked eye.

And perennial asters - they spread of their own accord and can be separated easily for transplanting all around the garden.
