Garden Views

Now that the big quilt is finished and shown at the guild meeting, I can return to finishing up the planting. Some things are already looking good for the year. The Nelly Moser Clematis is the first perennial to bloom. Yay! Big fat flowers.

Recent rains have flooded the pond with fresh water and we are enjoying seeing the fish in the clearer depths.

We have a new resident on the shelf above the Sweet Autumn Clematis. He can stay there, not bothering anyone, basking in the warmth of the sun.

I could not resist acquiring three new heuchera, Paris, new selection for 2013, supposedly continuous blooming. We'll see.
The rhododendrons are starting to bloom. Love seeing those big clusters.

And the peach iris is showing off its Spring color. Yummy!
The purple clematis is also in bloom, vying for prominence against the Nelly Mosers.
The snowball bush is heavy with round pretty.
And in the woods we have wild azaleas. Amazing.

  1. What an absolutely gorgeous garden. You have such a great variety of beautiful flowers and foliage. I'll admit it - I'm jealous! :)

  2. Beautiful! I especially love the iris-I've never seen a peach colored iris.

  3. These shots are making me long for Spring!

  4. What kind of snake is that? He would be good to have around to eat rodents! Let't just hope he doesn't suprise you too many times when you come across him this summer!

  6. That snake would NOT be welcome at my place!!! I don't care what they eat. The neighbors know that when they hear a blood-curling scream, i have just been startled at the sight of a garter snake!!!!! Snake moves quickly away!!! so do I!!

  7. your snake visitor is a Black Rat snake- non poisonous. the very best kind if snake to have around! it looks like he might be ready to shed, as his eyes have that milky blue color to them!

    don't worry- he'll eat his fill and move on.
