I know some of you think I fell in a hole, I haven't really fallen, just buried under home on the market stuff. Should be back to coasting for a while but I wanted to share a few pictures from the beginning of April and some from this past Thursday.
Here is The Learning Garden Wisteria floribunda 'Texas Purple' on April 1st (not an April Fool's Day joke).
And here it is ONE WEEK LATER!!
Many of you have seen the native Redbud, here is a Chinese Redbud from the Learning Garden. Cercis reniformis 'Oklahoma'.
Most everything in our area (to include North Carolina and South Carolina) is covered with yellow pollen from our Loblolly Pines and Oak pollen from many of the Red Oak family. It looks like White Oak flower later.
Native Aquilegia canadensis Columbine--- covered in pollen--
And Veronica 'Waterperry'
and Red Buckeye, Aesculus pavia, picture will be added to my new page (see tabs at the top)
Native fern, Osmunda regalis, Royal Fern is starting to unfurl-
and a dainty little daffodils---Narcissus - bulbocodium conspicuus--
Solomon' Seal, Polygonatum odoratum var. thunbergii 'Variegatum', just emerging-
A variegated Azalea 'The Robe'
And last but not least, my heavily pollen covered Forget-me-not, Myosotis Sylvatica.
I have been trying to get caught up with everyone's blogs. It seems as though I am trying to hold sand.....please don't feel slighted if I have not been to visit. I will get there eventually.
