bits of color

This year, the Pulmonaria began to bloom a full week before the bloodroot. It was so refreshing to suddenly see a bit of pink and blue amidst the many shades of brown in the leaf litter still covering most of the gardens.

The plants are only a few inches tall but they certainly have a lot going on in the Color Department. In addition to the multi-toned stems and prettily mottled leaves, the flowers begin to bloom in pink, then shift to a lavender blue!



  1. I don't think I've ever seen these! How very pretty--and must be a really early bloomer to beat out bloodroot.

  2. I think usually the bloodroot is just a bit earlier, but this year I was getting worried about it!

  3. Around here, quite a bit south of you, pulmonaria is a summer bloomer. Maybe a different variety.

  4. I've never seen those before but your drawing gives me a great mental picture of them. Enjoy the springtime color!!!!

  5. So wonderful to see something blooming - it's been a LONG winter!
