How lovely to see the ground phlox ... one of my favourite spring bloomers in the garden. My Canadian garden is just waking up!

What amazing color! Beautiful. How does this variety do against powdery mildew?

Hello, I have found your blog when browsing other gardening blogs and just had to comment. Beautiful pictures and interesting to see the same plants are blooming in your parts of the country as they are in my part of Germany.

Hi Naturegirl: I'm glad you came over...where, actually, a sweater would work here, too! Lol!

Hi Crafty Gardener: It won't be too long for you, I hope! I did get over and see your pansies!

Hi Kristi B: I've never had a problem with that with these guys. They are such low growers and really pretty much maintenance free. Of course, this is their moment in the sun...they look rather like a grassy mat later...which is fine with me...any space they take is some the weeds don't get! Although one caution, do get all the grass, etc. out before they begin their sprawl...I have one that has this unsightly grass growing through it and it is a pain to get out (now).

Hi Exile61: I'm glad you found me! I will have to come over and see!

Thanks everyone for the comments! Much appreciated!
