This week Monday's flower is the Pulmonaria, also known as Lungwort. I was first drawn to it because of the spotted leaves, then I found out deer did not like it because of the texture of the leaves, so I was sold.
It is a perennial which does best in shade, so it was perfect for my hillside. This plant started coming up before I even get a chance to clean the leaves off the garden bed, apply some compost, and mulch. You really can't resist the tiny violet and pink petals.
It is a plant most people love and I am always happyto share. Did I say it keeps multiplying? It does.
When I think of the Pulmonaria, strong and persistent comes to mind, it never gives up and flourish in all types of soil.
Lesson from a plant
Even when things look bleak never give, keep going and you will flourish.
Have a great week.

Did you notice the bumble bee? He was busy buzzing from flower to flower.
It is so nice watching things come to life after the long winter and if you are thinking about making a change, such as selling your present house and getting a new one I would love to assist you.
