I found some new surprises last time I was outside, and because this time of year you have to look a little harder to find something you may have to squint a little to see some of these. :)
I love how the Hellebores looked covered in raindrops, the sun shining through gives it a nice rosy glow.
The new Hellebore 'Mardi Gras Double' is starting to bloom. I'm having a hard time being patient, it looks like it's going to be very pretty.
More Iris reticulatas blooming near the pond. I planted quite a few last year, but the new ones don't have any blooms yet, just foliage so far.
I had thought the Pulmonaria seemed early, but looking back to last years pictures I found that they are right about on time. I love how these start out pink and then will change to purple as they age.
Navelwort 'Starry Eyes' (Omphalodes cappadocica) which Teza helped me to identify on another post, surprised me with one little flower open already. I have a few in my shady garden and they do great there, even in dry soil.
And this flower you won't have to squint to see, it's the Amaryllis 'White Christmas' which sent up another flower stalk and has just started blooming. This Amaryllis took forever to start growing, and now it has given me more blooms, a very nice surprise for sure!
