As I ventured out back one of the Dogwoods we planted is starting to open. Seems like overnight the bracts have started to open.
This Dicentra was just planted about 4 weeks ago and it is ready to bloom. Very satifying!
Maybe I should have saved this photo for my exciting 'closer' photo. It is exciting to me, this is one of the Hellebore planted last summer. I had 5 Hellebore installed by the landscaper and I moved them into a bit more shade. (We thought the first area was going to be shadier, but it turned out there was a lot of afternoon sun) None of them had bloomed this winter and I was getting concerned. Well, this morning I found a bud that will soon open. Gardening teaches you patience, sometimes over and over again if you are like me.
The Dogwood in the front yard is one that Mother Nature provided. I wanted any and all dogwoods saved, this one is beside the driveway.
The native Carolina Jessamine, Gelsemium sempervirens, is starting to open in the woods in the front yard.
The Coralbark Maple is putting forth great color.
Even the weeds are pretty.
This is the container by my front door, it has these pink Hyacinths, 'Jan Bos' and pink Snapdragons and an ivy called 'Pink 'n' Very Curly'. Hoping the snaps rebloom while the Hyacinth is still blooming.
Last, but not least, the Red Buckeye's progress..... think last spring this was a seed.....
Happy Spring to all--- enjoy!
