Today’s photos are from Mary Spencer.
I thought you might enjoy a few pictures of my Westminster, Maryland, spring flowers.
Named for Meriwether Lewis of Lewis and Clark fame, lewisia (Lewisia cotyledon, Zones 5–8) is native to the mountains of western North America and has gorgeous flowers in the spring.
Gardens are perfect places to sit and remember loved ones lost. Behind the bench, a Japanese maple (Acer palmatum, Zones 5–9) is just leafing out.
A bit of garden art is tucked into the lush greenery of spring.
