As you can see there are some bits of green happening here that Bart hasn't run over, hopped on or eaten.
Will try for a better shot - this was a rescued trillium - I dug out a good clump in advance of the heavy machinery. Is it still garden larceny if it's for good rather than evil?
Bring on the carbohydrates - Hosta Pineapple Upsidedown Cake. The first hosta up and open.
I had re-paired this lovely little dicentra with Brunnera 'Jack Frost' (take out magnifying glass and look just to the right of the bright green plant). Lost one last year. I guess I should be glad it's not dead, but geeze, not exactly the effect I was going for.
An old primula that I'd started from seed many years ago.
Many of the Carex have started to bloom - quite curious looking.
The whole plant is about the size of my two hands together.
Ompahlodes verna. Good dependable plant that spreads and is blue - what's not to like?
Anyone else find this is a bit Judy Chicago-ish? Saruma henryi about to bloom.
Now, here's the shot they put in the catalogue - Viola 'Freckles'. So cute, so freckly....
And so otherwise dull and boring, but heck. It does have the cutest little flowers and if you're into doing tiny bouquets, it is absolutely darling.
I cannot believe the clematis are this far along. Here's one all budded and ready to go.
It would seem that not only the flowers are early - the insects have begun some of their work.
