Helleobore Winter Jewels 'Cherry Blossom' has settled in really well and has lots of flowers.
The fish were swimming around and enjoying the sun. Hard to believe that a few hours before there was snow on the ground!
Bulbs are popping up everywhere. Tete-a-tetes are beginning to bloom and the squirrels haven't found these Crocuses yet. That ball of roots is a Hosta looking for a new home. It's even started growing!
Spring is prime time in most of the backyard. Things are really waking up.
Ribes sanguineum flowerbuds are so close to opening.
Two falls ago I planted 3 Fritillaria bulbs. I was excited to see how many are coming up this year.

I found Epimedium 'Elfin Pink' blooming already!
The path garden lit up by the sun.
And a walk out to the front yard reminds you that it did really snow last night. But even out there the plants seem happy and ready for spring.
The weather this winter reminds me of the one we had a few years ago which was followed by a record breaking hot summer. Either way, the plants don't seem bothered by it and really it is so pretty it's hard complain when it's followed by blue skies and sun.All words and photos in this post are property of A Gardener in Progress.
