It’s feeling so much like spring around here. The trees are leafing out and more plants are waking up from winter slumber.
The bleeding heart is continuing to put out little stems.
I’ve got some white ones, too, which I am really excited about. They might be blooming next week!
A new tulip opened up. This is Antoinette, a bouquet tulip:
I planted it with the Monte Carlo, which wasn’t really the look I was going for:
The Montes are on their way out now.
I think my favorite of the tulips this year is the Carnival de Nice. I just love how it looks:
The black and white tulips are going strong:
One of my very favorite flowers is popping out blooms, too. This is Centaurea, Amethyst in Snow:
Long time readers will remember this one. I snagged some of the babies from the garden at our old house and they were too small to flower last year, but this year we are rewarded! I just love the look of this plant.
And *finally* – the hummers are back!
I was so happy to see this little guy. If he is here now, he will love the garden in a couple months since I have a lot of hummingbird friendly flowers coming.
There has been a lot of rain this week, which is always good for the garden. Not so great for working in it, but we need it.
