Happy Earth Day, floral Friday and welcome to "this week in my Maryland garden!" Our pink azaleas started blooming this week and they brighten up a very shady part of the yard.

 This is probably our last Angelique tulip of the year so I might cut it and bring it indoors to savor.

Our window box dianthus survived another winter and put out its first flower this week.

 I found this volunteer (spontaneously growing) blue and white pansy in a sunny garden bed.

 The yellow and red tulips may be the last of the season but they are gorgeous.

The strawberries that survived the winter started blooming this week too. I received three new ones as a gift with purchase and planted those today as part of my Earth Day observance.

How did you celebrate Earth Day? Thank you for visiting! May God bless you and our planet!
