We had a good rain, and the tulips are opening.

I love this color:

A few of the hyacinths and tulips are blooming in the daylily/butterfly/cottage garden:

I love pink tulips, but you can see some of the Queen of the Night are beginning to peek up behind these pink ones.

This is the new "Old Garden Rose" rose garden, and it has peonies, foxgloves, lavender, and clematis planted there as well.

Don't you just love Spring?

Yes, I love Spring only wish it would get HERE. Your pink tulips are a very pretty shade.

Oh yay!! This gives so much hope to us in the lower zones, that things WILL bloom here eventually too. That purple tulip of yours is very nice. Every year I tell myself I need to pick out a purple one and never do. ;-*
Like that you mark all of your plants. I try and commit names to memory, but for the life of me I can't keep all my ferns straight! Yours look very long lasting and well made...might have to try some similar ones out.

I love the Queen of Nights too. They are such late bloomers that one can even plant some early blooming perennials with them. I have mine with a bright orange 'Fireball' Geum and like the combo a lot.
Thanks for the Happy Pics ;-)

Love the darker color on that first tulip and the softer pink ones are stunners too. And I see your roses are all leafed out, mine are just winter sticks yet. Need to start on my spring rose pruning hopefully soon. If you want your roses to grow stronger thicker stems, prune them down some now, if not just leave them. However, you should start spraying and continue every two weeks NOW if you want totally blacksot free roses.

Pretty! Wish they were not a one time thing here.

schoolhouse and cristenmk, I planted the Queen of that Night after someone on this forum said they were camee back several years for her. (Was that either of you?)

Rita, I love the purples too, and have a couple of shades of purple and a couple of shades of pink as well as the Queen of the Night planted. I also have red and yellow in one (front most) bed. (Lilies and shastas grow there).
These little roses are newbies and I haven't trimmed them yet, but I have trimmed the other roses. (Of couse I don't have hundreds like you do).

I have Queen of Night, but don't recall a conversation with you about them. Mine have come up and bloomed probably 3yrs., after all the snow and ice of this winter I hope they come back a 4th.
