The weather here in the Pacific Northwest has been absolutely wonderful. After several rainy, icky Aprils this year is a refreshing improvement. The garden is just bursting.
|Tulips from Costco planted late, blooming right on time.|
|Saxifrage blossom. I love the intricate markings.|
|Lewisia is almost in bloom.|
|Lady Banks rose is about ready to explode.|
|It's already exploded into this massive bush. As soon as it finishes blooming|
it will be getting a serious haircut.
|Ferns stretching out after months of slumber.|
|Hart's Tongue Fern|
|The new foliage on my evergreen huckleberries is fooling the hummingbirds.|
|And check out this cool coloration on Aquilegia 'Woodside Strain.'|
|One of my red-leaved Japanese Maples bit the dust. |
Fortunately this one is still alive and looking fab.
|A Heuchera, blooming Euphorbia and Creeping Jenny doing the tango.|
|Variegated Fuchsia foliage|
|The new foliage on Thalictrum ichangense ‘Evening Star’ is a dead ringer to Epimedium.|
In fact, if you look closely, you'll see Epimedium foliage behind it.
|See? Actually the Epi foliage is bigger and heart shaped.|
|I bought this Sophora just a few days ago to fill in this area.|
I love the new pink foliage. You know me and pink.
|Ooh la, la...|
|On the other end of the border is this stunning Spiraea that makes me so happy.|
|Being diligent with the slug bait is paying off. The hostas look really happy.|
I've been so busy lately. (Details on my writing blog. Click link on sidebar.) Forgive me for not visiting your blogs. Things will be calming down soon and I'll get caught up. I hope. At least I'll make a serious effort. Promise. Cheers.
