Gardening at Havenwood ~ GBBD May 2014

Wood anemone, Anemone quinquefolia
After lamenting the lack of flowers around the woodland at Havenwood just a few weeks ago, we have been over run by woodland treasures in the past two weeks. These beauties are a testament that some plants were just made to endure, even in the midst of decades of neglect.

So... Welcome to a surprise Garden Blogger's Bloom Day at Havenwood Gardens!  May it be the first of many.

Houstonia caerulea, Azure bluet
Azure bluet (Houstonia caerulea) prefers acid soil in the woodland... so this is a great place to start planting some azaleas. :)
Old favorites: forget-me-nots (Myosotis scorpioides)
Purple violets and wood anemone
Wood anemone, Anemone quinquefolia
Yellow violets
Little piece of pink flowering Virginia bluebells, Mertensia virginica
Virginia spring beauty, Claytonia virginica

Fern among the Virginia bluebells

Have a great weekend!


  1. What a delight! All these beautiful little treasures! The Trillium just appearing like that is really amazing!

  2. How fantastic to have all these beautiful flowers pop up in your woodland! I have Claytonia sibirica in my woodland, I think it is a bit more pink, such a lovely little plant.I can imagine how you felt when they first appeared, you were meant to live there!

  3. Great to find so many treasures Julie, just think what else might appear during the year.

  4. I'm so glad you have bluets! They are my favorite wildflower at my house. I don't mow the mossy area they grow in, and they have really started to spread and fill in. It's like a floating carpet in the spring. :)

  5. Wow Julie so many lovely wildflowers growing are blessed with these jewels.
