The first year for me to have the Greigii tulips bloom. Are they usually this short? The yellow is so bright.
Lots of tulips getting close to blooming.
One of the new Frittilarias from last year is close to blooming.
More Fritiallaria or Checkered Lily.
One of my new plants from the Northwest Perennial Alliance plant sale is this Tulipa turkestanica.
Magnolia 'Vulcan' is finally going to bloom. This is it's third year in our yard. Last year the buds were damaged by a late freeze.
Camellia japonica 'Kumasaka' with it's first flower opening.
Old-fashioned Bleeding Hearts (Dicentra spectabilis) are about a month behind, but they are finally close to blooming.
Yesterday I saw two Bald Eagles flying above our yard, today there were three and one seemed a bit smaller than the other two. They appeared to just be soaring around and then eventually flew off.
Poor Gracie and Cookie haven't had much time to play because it's been so wet. Sweet Pea got Cookie out to at least hop around the deck for awhile. Gracie has gotten so good being around the rabbit, mostly just following Cookie around to smell him.
Tomorrow looks like the one and only day of sun this week so we'll be finding something to do outside. Hoping that some of you are getting some spring like weather and enjoying the sun.All words and photos in this post are property of A Gardener in Progress.
