Spring Blooms at Rivermont

Hello & happy Monday! If your weekend was anything like ours, you may find yourself wanting to escape to the yard for a little quiet time after work this evening. In case, like me, you don’t get that chance, here are a few pics I snapped on Saturday morning around Rivermont. We have so many things popping up and blooming! One of my very favorite things about the past few months has been discovering what Nancy planted around the yard. Apparently she had quite an affection for the space.

We saw Rivermont for the first time in the waning weeks of March last year. But, to be honest, we were both so overwhelmed by the house itself and that feeling you get when you just know something is meant to be, that it’s hard to remember any of the details about the yard. It’s been fun each season to see what’s come back to life!

One of the 4 varieties of purple flowers I found popping up this weekend. I’m hoping that this lovely plant can replace the copious amounts of monkey grass currently acting as ground cover on our side garden. Fingers crossed!

The plant type is a mystery to me, but they look ever so elegant.

The bark of the hackberry tree looks like a topographic map at close inspection.

I was lamenting our lack of forsythia the day this guy popped at the corner of our lot. Score!

  1. Hanna great to see your enthusiasm about what is growing at Rivermont! Leslie and I are still experiencing the same excitement three years into our home on Lakemoor. Love your site also. Enjoy the spring day…Randy Kerns

  2. The purple flower picture looks like Vinca to me. We have it growing along with creeping Jenny as ground cover and they do a very nice job squishing the weeds! 🙂 Both spread nicely and the Jenny can have a cascading effect.

  3. The purple flower is indeed vinca minor, and is a lovely shade groundcover. The other unknown is trillium, a native wildflower.
