I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.-- Ruth Stout
Let's take a walk to find what other plants are blooming in my garden.
|Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry Prunus x 'Snofozam'|
|Pulmonaria has the not very pretty common name Lungwort. Its pink and blue bossoms are very pretty.|
And set green caps on every stalk;
Her primroses peep bashfully
From borders of the garden walk.
-- Hannah R. Hudson "April" The Atlantic Monthly, 1868
|Primrose Primula vulgaris and Grape hyacinth Muscari armeniacum|
|Dwarf weeping redbud Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist'|
Of course, there are hellebores still. Their pretty, nodding blooms beautify the woodland walk.
The first tulip to bloom each season was planted by my husband's mother more than 50 years ago. It is sheltered in a corner between the tractor shed and a picket fence where deer do not venture.
