I was thrilled to find this little clump of bloodroot. I had one these two blooms last year. These were the original planting. You can see how it has multiplied this past winter. I was so afrain that the drought last year would kill them. Then the drenching it has taken so far this spring was a worry. This delicate looking wildflower has stood up to all the exaggerated weather conditions that has been thrown at it over the past year.
Another little surprise was this clump of Grape Hyacinth. I have threatened to thin and move it to better surrouondings for years but haven't done so as yet. It just hangs in there for me.
There are all kinds of pop ups since I have been gone. It is just amazing how quick the garden responds to the longer spring days. I just hope the freeze predicted tonight doesn't put a stop to all the blooms. I hate the thought of losing all of the apple blossoms and hydrangeas like last year. Keep your fingers crossed. More later when I get myself back into routine.
