We Have Green!
Pictures from April 20:
These were not planted in the Green Garden, but they could have been. I love the green "eyes" in them.
And here they are . . . The much anticipated green parrot tulips. They did not disappoint. I've never grown parrot tulips before so I didn't know what to expect. These are great!
This is the picture that is in my screen saver slide show at work. An attempt to be "arty"!
The wild columbine that I planted in the wildflower garden last year germinated quite well even though the seed was a few years old. Last fall, I transplanted a lot of them to spread them out. They came through the winter just fine and the first one is blooming:
They are also supposed to attract hummingbirds. Coincidentally, the wildflower garden is next to my planned hummingbird garden they should work well together.
My bleedinghearts have begun to bloom. I have two. A fernleaf bleedingheart . . .
. . . and an old-fashioned bleedingheart.
The first Johnny Jump-Up of the season:
There are a few, very few more, in various beds. No matter how hard I try, I can't get them to grow well in my yard. I know most people consider them a nuisance. I WANT them to become a nuisance! Maybe I should just stop trying so hard!
