Catching up to the fastest spring I’ve ever seen – temps in the 70’s and 80’s for days at a stretch in February, followed by a few days that plunged into the 30’s. Spring is usually changeable, but this year it was late winter that gave us screwy weather. Everything seems to be blooming at once.
Lots of tommie crocuses under the maple this year, and I’m growing to love them. These cream-colored crocuses are another delight. This warm, chalky light yellow is one of my favorites and seems to blend with everything in the garden.
Finally, success with crested iris! I think these were a bonus sent with my McClure and Zimmerman order. They don’t last long, but they are beautiful. Need more.
Other times it’s the purple ones.
The first daffodils are these by the shed door, no idea what kind.
