Aha! Some green! A Hellebore patch! I'll bet if I check back in a week or so there will be some blooms there. Stay tuned!
Those Rascally Rabbits!!
Someone or something has been pruning my roses and...
...pruning my Azaleas!
Flamingoes laying down on the job. They usually mark new plants or stake plants. But they don't keep deer, rabbits or raccoons away.
Some winter sown seeds. A few weeks ago they had about six inches of snow and ice on top of them.
The deck still contains an iceberg. The snow and ice was up over the arms of the chairs...
...but the iceberg is slowly melting.
Back inside and in a corner of my sewing space an orchid blooms have been opening since late February.
I've had the orchid for a long time and it blooms around the same time every year just when a touch of Spring is needed.
I took a hardwood cutting of Pineapple Sage last fall and now it is blooming. Pineapple Sage is not hardy here so I bring it into the sewing space every year and take it out in late Spring. I like to keep it near a garden path because a slight brush against the leaves releases the strong scent of pineapple. Now I have two plants of it!
I love plants and flowers that are scented. Heliotrope is another one of those old fashioned plants with a vanilla scent. Heliotrope is not hardy either so it also comes into the sewing space for the winter. I started four plants from seeds many years ago and these usually go out on the deck in the summer.
