On the other hand all seems well and good in the garden. Today I decided I should at least give a report about what is going on in the garden this time of the spring.
This post is a little picture heavy.
What with all the usual suspects giving their best blooms. I must say that the daffodils and hellebores aren't as floriferous as they usually are. This it the first time I ever remember the freezes and thaws took a toll of blooms but I still have enough blooms to make it feel like spring.
Some of the other bulbs like these frittilaries have done exceptionally well.
I must remember to move the windflowers out of the hellebores this fall. Or thin the hellebores might be a better choice.
My attempt at red white and blue out front was thwarted by some red & yellow tulips that were mixed in. No matter I think they are all just fine together.
More tulips out back. It seems that the paler tulips are reproducing and the reds are not.
My last report stated that some of the mini hostas were heaved out of the ground. They have recovered for the most part. I was pleased to find these seemly fully recovered. Grow mini hostas!
Below is a hosta I just love in the spring. It comes out all bright and cheery. Then into summer it loses some of it's bright yellow color. I can't remember the name of this one and I have checked my records and I can't pin point which it is. Hmmmmm Oh well, I will just ogle it and not worry about it's name.
Our Azalea is beginning to bloom. This is always such a nice sight.
The Serviceberry tree is blooming up a storm.
Epimediums are blooming nice now.
Last but not least the Yellow-throated Warblers are back in town staking out territories. It is always such a delight to have them singing in the neighborhood.
Clearly I need to snap out of it and get some things done in the garden. I hope you all are able to get into the garden now. If not now after the blizzard passes through.
