I really appreciate this little plant - Dicentra ochroleuca. In one of the dryer areas and still looking fresh as a daisy with lots of blossoms to come.
Got a bit more of the compost scattered around yesterday afternoon. I'm a little worse off - but the garden is looking happier with the lovely dark nutrient filled soil around the perennials and bushes.
Viburnum lantana. I'll work on a better shot tomorrow. The cool thing is that when you look at the blossoms from the side, the little sticks of pollen are quite evident...
From this angle it almost looks as if they're floating over the flowers.
The first Aguilegia in bloom - a mutated seedling from something I grew from seed years ago.
I like my Hosta to cover my tulip leaves. Hosta montana macrophylla takes his job very seriously - the tulips are about 12" high. I gave him a drink yesterday - looking much happier than his photo yesterday.
Now, this is a bare spot. At least it looks that way now. But, by this afternoon I hope to have it filled with something pretty from the Toronto Botanical Gardens members-only preview sale.
Cute little evergreen that I dumped compost on, rather than scattering it around - getting a bit lazy. Very sorry Mr. Picea pungens 'Montgomery'.
