OT: blooms around the garden
It was overcast today, so I pulled the camera out for the first time in a while. No daylilies blooming yet, but everything else is blooming way ahead of schedule!
Here are the large aliums'Globemaster.'
Yarrow ( Achillea) about a month ahead of schedule:
I spotted a baby cardinal trying to disappear in a potted Japanese maple tree. He was only a couple of feet off the ground here!
Baptisia 'Purple Smoke' also blooming way early:
Hostas in a shady area - they don't look so wonderful as the daffodil foliage is going down everywhere:
The heucheras look so colorful and they've gotten huge this year. I hope they will still be colorful in late June!
My friend Tee designed these license plates. We can't use them on cars in VA. But there's always a place for a daylily license tag:
Salvia 'May Nights' going strong in April:
Real oldie rose MR. Lincoln. Geez, I've grown this one for over 30 years.
This past weekend, I finally got so frustrated with the nepetas sprawling all over the place that I tied them up, so this doesn't look so great but too bad. They need dividing. This is Walker's Low.
Another real oldie hybrid tea, Tiffany.
The clematis around the deck are starting to bloom:
Looking across the back left garden - not much going on, but peonies will be blooming soon.
Will close with a rhododendron:
