Early this morning I could count the number of blooms on my creeping phlox. Our temperatures today reached nearly 80 degrees and by 5:00 this evening it is now in full bloom. My Creeping Phlox is very beautiful this year! Do you grow Creeping Phlox?
The bumble bees were hovering all around but I just couldn’t get a good picture!! This is the first of our spring blooms, isn’t it beautiful?!! Spring is finally here this Friday, I am certainly ready for warmer weather!
I hope you have a beautiful spring! What is blooming in your garden? What is your favorite spring flower?

My phlox is a sad mess—but I can’t complain. . .the landscape team finally after all this time, rain and bad weather got started Monday. A transformation is underway—most excited. They did dig up things they thought they could replant elsewhere with the sad phlox being a part of that—so we shall see.
I’ll do a little post on it soon but I’m back to Atlanta for the remainder of the week dealing with this crisis with Dad—-
Hugs Michael and happy Springs—and happy wood
My fathers phlox is also a mess too, no blooms for him this year. It will do fine moving it but you will need to keep it watered! Oh great, I am glad to hear they have started on your yard!! I can wait to see the transformation pictures!! I hope everything is ok with your dad, be careful traveling into Atlanta! Big hugs Julie!!!
I am not familiar with phlox other than pictures. It is very pretty! We have a few hellebores blooming that seem to be popular in Oregon, the Rhodies are looking good but not in bloom yet. Our plants are all pretty new since we have only been here for just over a year. So we are still in the experimental phase. I think it might be slugs.. kind of squishy and slimy buggers might be eating petals and leaves. They say to put out some beer for them in little containers. I have planted some pansies in a few planters along with other fun little flowers. Pansie’s are always reliable.. Gee I need to get busy and post some photos…
Our hellebores are just about ready to start blooming. I bet your rhodies are going to be beautiful this year! Slugs will eat about everything and they love leaves, especially the hosta leaves. Love Pansies’s and all the beautiful colors!! You have some beautiful garden photos posted but I love seeing more!! The iris pictures are beautiful!!
I love your logo/header! Looks great! Did you design it? Also that handle on the ice cream scoop is gorgeous… I am thinking it would be a great Christmas gift for a few of my married children…
Yes I did design the logo! The ice cream scoops make a nice gift, I get a lot of orders for them and the engraving.
Oh how beautiful! My Nana grew phlox around her beautiful old fashioned red rose bushes and the combo of deep red and lavender still brings back memories of her home…………..Just love your photos!
thank you Kelli!! I think the phlox is more beautiful this year than last year!! 🙂
We’re headed into Autumn and I see these Spring flowers and another blog I found asparagus and now I want Spring. 🙂
We are all excited about spring with all the snow and ice we had this year we want it bad!!! Autumn is a beautiful time of year 🙂
I did have a phlox but it seems to have disappeared… must plant a new one as the display is lovely. Glad spring has arrived for you too! I’ve got little daffodils opening today, and a few early tulips too! 🙂
Good morning Cathy! I saw a few yellow daffodils yesterday blooming but they were in town where the temperatures are warmer!! No tulips yet!! You should post pictures! 🙂
Its so beautiful Michael! Im sure it adds a lovely vibrant color to the landscape! Love the ice cream spoon! 🙂
Hi Pallavi!! thank you! 🙂
I like your new logo – handsome. I have creeping phlox and I love it until it is done flowering and then it is not quite so beautiful. 🙂
thank you on the logo! Yes me too but I have found that I get it really green again and also to bloom numerous times during the summer if I fertilize using liquid fertilizer!
Oh this makes me very happy! I hope that spring weather “creeps” a little more north to Virginia! I don’t grow phlox but have always loved it. Very nice indeed! We had 70-something temperatures yesterday and I felt the sun on my face. It was healing, a real blessing. I am ready 🙂 LOVE my scoop!
Good morning Tricia!! I am excited about spring too, the warmer weather seems to make everyone feel revived! Only thing with the warmer weather is the pollen 😦 I posted the pic yesterday on instagram and got 7 emails on wanting pricings and cost to engrave, maybe I will get a few orders, we will see!! 🙂
beautiful phlox! wonderful for spring!
How is it that your area got far more snow than we did, yet you have gorgeous creeping phlox blooming already?! 🙂
We have stems of jonquils poking through the ground but that is all. Monday was 74 degrees; the rest of this week is in the 40s with 20s at nighttime. However, we are enjoying the many flocks of Sandhill Crane flying over our house on the migration north. 🙂
I am not sure Lindy, but the phlox sure is beautiful this year! I would love to see the Sandhill Cranes fling north, I bet that is beautiful!!
I have to find some creeping phlox for my backyard. I had a beautiful creeping geranium plant that started out tiny but grew and flourished and had lovely purplish pink flowers and was huge, sad story I hired someone to do some work in my backyard and they dug it up and threw it away like it was a weed. I want to put the phlox where my geranium was. Your photo is just beautiful.
The creeping phlox is easy to care for after it gets it’s root established! Up tot hat point it need water like most plants. The geranium sounds beautiful, my wife grounds the geraniums in pots, they do well in our area. 🙂 Loved the corned beef sandwich post today!!
I love creeping phlox and grow a few large patches of it. One of the things I like about it is how you can mow it if it gets into your lawn. (Which it always seems to do)
I know what you mean, it does spread throughout the garden!! 🙂
My phlox is just starting to green up. I love seeing the signs that spring is indeed on it’s way! You ice cream scoop is gorgeous! I love how it was engraved.
Good evening Julie!! Green is good, it won’t be long then before it is blooming!! thank you!
Beautiful phlox! Our phlox is blooming as well though it hasn’t spread much…. The hydrangeas are started to show some green. The fruit trees have blossoms…just hope we don’t get the upper 30 degrees they are currently predicting for next week.
Hi Gretchen!! That’s great, you have probably had warm weather this week! My hydrangeas are not showing any signs of green just yet. I sure hope don’t get cold weather again!! 😦
My goodness, Michael, send me some of those pretty flowers. And that scoop too! Beauties, all.
hello Cynthia!! I could but I am pretty sure they would get stopped at customs!! Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
I plan too! Plus I plan to work on some of Laurens recommendations! 🙂
Yes, you had better! (big smile)
I created a task list and started prioritizing them last night but I have more to add to this list plus researching Pinterest and Etsy store!! 🙂
Well, it sounds like you’ve got your marching orders, poor Michael.
