Joyce Coomer: Culmination of Purple Week in yard

A grand finale of Purple - great except for 'non-native, invasive, and annoying henbit.'

Joyce Coomer writes:
The redbuds in bloom around the pasture were a grand finale of "purple week" in my yard. The grape hyacinths have been in bloom for more than two weeks and seemed to be even happier yesterday than when they first started blooming. Regular hyacinths scattered hither and yon are still blooming brightly -- purple, of course -- and the squill still has a few bright blooms. Scattered batches of violets were in bloom across the yard yesterday.

Also in the purple theme are two hyacinths by the porch at work and vinca by the side of the building which has been highlighted with dandelions. (See accompanying photo.)

However, the non-native, invasive and annoying henbit I can do without.
- Joyce M. Coomer
