at last some blooms...
Things have been so busy at work...I didn't even pay attention to the progress of my spring bloomers until everything "popped"!
I get two days off (in a row!!), so am planning to get out there and do some serious weeding. I say plan on it, but you know how easily plans go awry ;-) Must also remember to find a place to plant my new Perovskia 'Peek-a-Blue'.
Last week I did pull out a big juniper and some scraggly Hyssop (H. officinalis). It was a good decision- make room for something more interesting....
...like a Ginkgo 'Mariken'! Bought one at work and a little Thuja 'Whipcord' followed along ;-)
Hellebores also busted out. Blue Lady, Golden Lotus, and Peppermint Ice. I thought the GL would be prettier and I wouldn't enjoy the PI so much (not a pink fan in general), but it turned out to be the opposite on both! Lol.
This could be the ugliest, dingiest pink I have ever seen. Ithought the shade of pink of these P. 'Pearl Bells' would be clearer. ;-P At least the stamens and harry legs (or stems, lol) are interesting to photograph.
A couple primroses- drumstick and one from a GW trade.
After many years my Hepatica has finally produced more than three flowers!
Scilla siberica, the powdery blue bi-color of Muscari latifolius, and the glorious Chionodoxa with Carex buchananii.
A most despised plant that I adore ;-)
The fabulous Epimedium warleyense, with Anemone blanda and Brunnera 'Hadspen Cream' in the background
Daffodil in the fiery flames of spirea
Not flowers, but quite lively foliage of Euphorbia polychroma/epithymoides 'First Blush'
A few of my blooms ;-) Any of your own to share?
