The day is cool and windy 50F But it did not stop me from taking pictures to record the progress in my garden.
Lovely full buds on the Tulips
These two primroses were planted last season and appear to be happy in their location.
Purple/yellow Pansys brightening up a corner in the Blue/Purple & yellow garden
The Hydrangea I moved last season, and was concerned about it surviving the move, has settled in nicely.
I wonder how long the Hyacinths are going to bloom. Aren't they gorgeous?
These Daffodils are new to the garden this season. I love the bright orange and yellow centers.
Hostas in the Blue pot have put on a spurt of growth in the last few days.
The first Anenome of the season. This is the third spring for them
Daffodils nodding their heads in the wind
Abundant Camelias this year. The rabbits love to eat the blossoms as they finish their bloom cycle and fall to the ground.
I have to research the name of this plant. I went back through the archives and found this plant. ( will make a marker and place it by the plant so I will not have to guess again next year) It is called Burgenia.
I am eagerly looking forward to the tulips opening
I rode along when MrC went up to Oak Harbor on a service call, and as the dollar store was within walking distance, I decided it would be more fun looking around there, than waiting for him to finish the job he had to do. Of course you know I can't resist buying more garden art, so here are pictures of the few things I found today.
Every time I was ready to take a picture, I was buffeted by a gust of wind, so I had to take these pictures in between the gusts, and take several pictures to make sure at least one of them would be in focus.
This lovely Hyacinth is almost in full bloom and you just get a hint of the fragrance which, will deepen as the flower opens.
Grape Hyacinths always remind me of my Grandmother's garden which was a sea of blue in early Spring. With a few more days of warm weather these should open fully.
I can hardly wait to see the colors of 60 tulips I planted last fall.
The Chionodoxa is the cutest little flower. This one is barely three inches tall, with little dainty perfect flowers.
