Default Misc. pots

I planted two of the large pots with gladiolus bulbs. I hope they bloom. This was taken about 2 weeks ago. The ferns along the fence died back b/c of a rare hard freeze where it got down to an unheard of 20 degrees. They are just now starting to come back from the roots. Donna

I heard on the news today that the cherry blossoms in DC are at their peak.

Default Impatiens in planter, pineapple sage

They'll grow a lot as time goes on. The elephant ears are coming back from the roots of the mother plant which died back the abnormally cold winter.

It was a slow start to spring but stuff is waking up!

This is the Mock Orange (Philadelphus 'Natchez') at the back corner of the house. It's in full bloom and what a scent!



This is an 'Amethyst Falls' wisteria, which is a relatively dwarf type. Unlike the insanely unruly Chinese wisteria that wants to take over the world, Amethyst Falls can be easily kept pruned to a bush shape. Behind it is a Knockout rose.



Any day now there should be a few irises opening. I think we've finally turned the corner and winter has given in.

Dawg, is that an antique rose behind the wisteria?
