We featured Kielian Dewitt’s garden back in December (refresh your memory HERE), and again in January, when she shared some gorgeous winter scenes with us (HERE). Today Kielian’s sharing her garden as it wakes up this spring!

Kielian says, “Well, it appears spring has arrived in Montana almost four weeks early!  Some of the 500 daffodils, hyacinths and tulips that were planted last fall are already displaying their frilly blooms to the world.  Phlox, candytuft, pasque flower, bleeding heart and flowering almond bushes are hitting their prime right before a mild frost forecasted for this week…..sigh.  I guess Mother Nature decides the bloom schedule based on Old Man Winter’s input.”

Gorgeous yet again, Kielian! I’m putting Montana on my list of dream destinations…

    Kielian, your flowering almond bushes are particularly lovely as their enchanting pink blossoms catch the eye throughout your garden. Perhaps you feel towards them the way I do towards the redbud trees whose bloom period seem to put an exclamation point on the fact that spring has really arrived here in the east.

    Montana (Columbia Falls) is my old stomping grounds, rugged country but gorgeous, everyone needs to visit. Kielian's garden is just waking up and looks fabulous.

    This is gorgeous ! About 20 years ago we were spending a few days in Kalispell. My husband went running and came back, saying I have to show you a garden in the neighborhood. It was beautiful, full of tall delphiniums and lovely roses and a charming fence. A year later I saw the same garden in a rose catalogue ! Amazing what gardeners like you can grow in such a cold climate! I garden in Maryland, but grew up in Denver, so know how intense the flower color is in the mountains.
    I love how the flowers compliment the stone and trim on your charming home. Great job !

    One of the most beautiful, successfully designed gardens I've ever seen anywhere! More than that, though, it's in the heart of deer/moose/bear country!

    The story of your garden would make wonderful reading for other mountain gardeners (and some of us in the lowlands and woodlands). Plant lists, info on fencing and wildlife considerations, successful and not-so-sucessful approaches would be greatly welcomed by other mountain gardeners.

    Thank you for sharing photos of the beauty you've created!
