Dianthius (probably spelled wrong)
I have no idea what these are, do you ?

Lambs ear. Will bloom shortly.

Snowball.

Snowballs. I am proud that this bush survived because two years ago with the Easter freeze and the summer drought, I thought I had lost it.

Mimi brought one sprig of this ground cover home years ago from Monteagle and we call it Opie's ground cover as that is the lady who gave it to her. Got lots of Japanese iris that will bloom later and the lillies of the valley in the background.

Closer look at the ground cover.

Miss Mary gave Mimi a little bush and I do not know its name either. The flowers are a pale blue. Each year it gets a little bigger but not much. Any suggestion?
The kitty justice is I have lots to learn about the new toy but oh what fun and I will share with you my meager efforts.

Thanks for the advise. I still feel slightly uneasy with this new toy. Like dancing with a new partner. I will be happy when I feel we are dancing smoothly together. Peace

I hear y'all. Spring is like Mother Nature's Xmas, each day we get to see new exciting things. Peace
