...Especially when it comes to Spring!
Every year this is one of my favorite combinations: Purple tulips with a backdrop of yellow Basket of Gold Alysum.This is the first Spring for our new raised beds. I had fun filling in gaps around the iris with spikes of blue delphinium, some Goldmound Spirea and Crimson Pygmy Barberry to go with the red Japanese maple that is just leafing out.
See how the creeping thyme between the pavers has grown since we planted it last fall. Let me tell you, Daryl's Nursery has quality plants!

I can't say that this Appledorn Elite is my favorite tulip, but with the Crimson Barberry as a backdrop it is redeemed. Which reminds me of something else crimson that redeems: the blood of Jesus Christ! Thank you, Jesus, for dieing in my place!
