These crocus were inherited with the house and much as it irritates me, I leave this patch of lawn unmowed until the foliage ripens off each year.
Stachyurus praecox is blooming looking happy! Yes, I'll get right out there and get rid of that mite-infested bamboo!
Many hellebors blooming in my garden right now but this one will represent them all for this bloom day. I got it in a flat of hellebore seedlings marked "doubles." It was very inexpensive to buy them this way (through a co op with other gardeners) and it only took a few years for them to become these lovely large plants.
Ribes sanguineum, a volunteer that I've allowed to stay!
Primroses. The doubles are much more long lived in my garden than the singles for some reason.
Edgeworthia chrysantha's scent wafts beaufully on the air.
Not really blooms but Pernettya mucronata berries have lasted since fall and will continue developing and looking stunning while the new white blooms apper later in the year. More people should grow this evergreen gem!
Last but not least, Dichroa febrifuga berries still hanging on.
Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting the floral festivities! Make sure you click over to her site to see what's blooming all over the world!
