Here is a bit of color I found today:
Enjoying the view of our neighbors Forsythia. Some years he cuts it way down and we can't see it, so glad we can this year. The ground drops about 4 feet on the other side of that fence so this Forsythia is pretty tall.
I like the view of the path from this angle. Daffodils and Tete-a-tetes are all blooming, but facing the fence, Golden Mock Orange and the pretty leaves of the White Bleeding Heart all pop.
Finally the Old-fashioned Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spectabilis) has buds starting. They are so behind and seem much smaller than usual.
Muscari is just about ready to be picked for little spring bouquets.
Pink Flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum) is beautiful this year. It has gotten so tall and is covered in flowers. So far I haven't seen any Hummingbirds at it, maybe they don't like the rain either.
Marsh Marigold in the pond which needs a bigger container.
Navelwort (Omphalodes cappadocica) 'Starry Eyes'.
The flower from this Epimedium surprised me, it's so bright it stood out against the Crocus and Bluebell foliage around it.
Probably one of my favorite container plantings I've ever done. It is so bright!
Looks like our next chance at a dry day is Sunday, otherwise it's rain all the way through next weekend. I'm just hoping this spring won't be as wet and cool as last spring was. It was hard on many of the plants (and gardeners).All words and photos in this post are property of A Gardener in Progress.
