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 blossoms...so pretty.
And in the woods we have wild azaleas. Amazing.
