Spring is at its peak in Columbus Dispatch garden writer Diana Lockwood’s woodland garden, and, lucky for us bloggers, we had the opportunity to tour it last week. Here are some highlights from our visit.
A front yard chock full of spring bulbs like tulips, daffodils and snake’s head lilies and plenty of woodland wildflowers including Virginia bluebells, spring beauty, anemone, Jack-in-the-pulpit, wood poppies and trillium.

What a wonderful day — great company, beautiful weather, and now a delightful blog post to remember it by. Somehow your photos manage to make everything look good and bypass the weeds and the many areas that are works in progress. Will definitely be referring back to this next Jan and Feb when I need a wintertime lift.
