....so spring must be really and truly coming!
Here's what I see along my front walk (most pleasant!):
These are probably Ice Follies in front and an unknown early yellow behind...
Early blooms, just starting on Cum Laude:
These beauties are called Fragrant Breeze:
First flower open on Sweetness (first of many, I hope):
February Gold (which never blooms in February):
I saw later this afternoon that Tete-a-Tete is also blooming...I'll try to get them tomorrow. While we wait for the daffodil show to really begin, other things are trying to grab our attention.
Winter Daphne in full bloom is heavenly:
Look here...I hope, I hope, I hope that these are flower buds on my Clematis Armandi (and not just new leaves). If so, this will be the very first time it has bloomed. This is another one with wonderful fragrance.
Early peonies are making their appearance. That foliage in front is from Dutch Iris.
This is what I thought (hoped) I would see all along my driveway. Alas, this is the only grouping. There are scattered bits (one or two or so) in other places.
I'll stop for now with this picture of a double pink hellebore. I've added (since last spring) a couple of double whites (one from Portland that I can't wait to tell you about) and unknown (color) double seedling...here's hoping next year will bring lots of double hellebore blooms...but for now, we'll be content with this one, won't we?
Spring, spring, spring! I think it might be almost here! You know what that means...something interesting happening all the time in the garden! Hope you'll join me!
