I just love this time of year. Plants and flowers are springing up daily. The weather has been so nice I can't hardly stand to be inside. I have walked down this same path daily for awhile. I know I did this morning but this afternoon I saw this....
The Prairie trillium recurvatum is also finally open. It seems to like this warmer weather we are having.
The Mayapples, Podophyllum peltatum, are all popped up. Some have buds on them. It won't be long and they will be blooming. None too soon for the big ole bumble bees that have been trundling through the garden lately.
The always faithful native Columbine are opening too. This means to me that the hummingbirds should be returning at any moment.
This has been the best year for the Iris cristata 'powder blue giant' in my garden. I don't know why that is but I am pleased to see them blooming so nice.
Do you have any surprises in your garden this spring?
