Although the storms are loud and windy, the temperatures are unusually high…around 73F today. Suddenly things are popping up!
Yesterday a friend came by to walk the gardens with me. We noticed the Bloodroot in its beginning stages. You can see the veining in the leaves as they begin to unwind. I think they look like cigars!
As they unfurl you can see the wavy outline of each leaf and the bud in the center. To me this is the official start of spring! Hurray!
Nearby the Mertensia is popping up with very dark foliage.
The new green shoots seem to have been nibbled… These will be white Dodecatheon.
Just yesterday I was looking for these Corydalis leaves to no avail! Here they are today! I believe this clump will be pink.
These are my great delight. The Hepatica are beginning to appear.
In another area there are blue scilla and white trout lilies turning up.
Hellebores are in this area as well.
Lots of tidying up to do here and elsewhere! Today I cut back a few grasses. I guess slowly but surely we’ll get there!
I left my heart in Haiti… They tell me I’ll never get it back! Do visit updates here as well! http://haitidreams.wordpress.com/
