A look down the the path is seen through my favorite purchase last year, the arbor. The arbor has a Clematis on each side, both showing signs of new growth. I hope my vision of a flower framed shaded path will happen this year. It is probably the thing I am most looking forward to seeing.
At the end of the straight part of the path is the big Cedar tree. I see the perfect spot for a double Hellebore right in front of the Hydrangea, too bad we couldn't find one today at the nursery. After I finished with pictures I got all of the foliage cleaned up on my Hellebores, what a difference it makes!
My favorite Hydrangea across from the Cedar tree. I'm crossing my fingers for flowers this year. Last year a late freeze killed the flower buds. This year I'll be out with sheets to protect it if any more freezes are predicted.
Some of the Pulmonarias have buds. I divided this plant and spread it all down the path. I think it is 'Roy Davidson', it has done great under the Cedar tree.
Heading back down the path towards the pond you can see lots of bulbs sprouting. There are Bluebells, Snowflakes (leucojum), Crocus and Daffodils planted.
And my favorite picture of the day is my Littlest Gardener taking a little run down the path.
This week we have lots more rain predicted so it was nice to take advantage of a dry and sort of sunny day to enjoy being outside and breathing in a little fresh air.
