|When I looked out my window last Saturday morning, the freshly blooming spring was coated with a layer of glistening frost. |
|Pieris Japonica - an late winter bloomer - seemed unscathed by the frosty touch. |
|Solomon Seal and Azaleas pressed on in their glory|
|My hellebores kept their little heads down as usual as if to say, "Oh dear, here we go again." |
My Japanese maples were glorious with their glitzy foliage in the early morning light.
|Japanese double kerria |
|Have you ever wondered how the tulip magnolias got their name? One look gives it away. |
Kwanzan cherry with virburnam/
I LOVE this heuchera called 'Electric Lime'
Erica or Mediterranean heather still blooming after 3 months finally gets usurped by the blooming azaleas.
|Fothergilla is a very under-rated 3 season beauty in the garden. |
This Golden Shadow red twig dogwood is one of my favorites and echoes the colors of the Euphorbia 'Blackbird' blossoms seen the photo below that are about 3 feet away from it.
|Chinese Snowball viburnam - blooms again in the fall but is audaciously stunning each spring. |
Variegated Solomon Seal is almost other-worldly as it rises up from the ground each spring
|A freshly frosted tulip |
|Mable has just about figured out how to get out of our old fence. Peonies ready to bust open.|
