Okay. So despite the persistent cold. . . and all the rain. . . and the fact that the sun has only been shining for a couple of hours in, well, weeks now. . . my garden is popping!
Let's see what's blooming THIS week.
To start, I've got an awfully lot of these . . .
But. They add color. And the bees like them. So there is that.
I've also got this going on . . .
There's some grape hyacinth, and the yellow bits? Cushion spurge (Euphorbia polychroma, if you want to be technical). And those pinkish things? Weeds. (It's called purple deadnettle, and I'm pulling it left and right.) (Really. It's everywhere this year.)
One of my spring favorites is going to town this year. This is Jack Frost brunnera.
I have clouds of this all over my garden, and it is just lovely right now.
My poor, waterlogged quince is really trying to put on a show.
Most of the blooms, though, are too soggy to look good in photographs.
This little shrub is called a fothergilla. It's just getting started.
I love these odd little blooms -- tiny bottlebrushes . . . with a touch of chartreuse. (You can see my blooming viburnum in the background -- if you squint a little and use your imagination.)
It's a great time in the garden! (Or . . . at least it WOULD be . . . if the weather would settle down just a bit.) What's blooming in your garden today?
