We now have a variety of colours and blooms, the Double Flowering Plum is putting on a decent display (though not as impressive as the spring after we threatened to cut them down...)

Here are a few Ice Follies behind a small protective fence.  Seems to work with both 2 and 4 legged individuals!

Brunnera Jack Frost is growing very well after his first winter here. 

Old Fashioned Bleeding Hearts are growing very quickly!  Well, at least the pink ones are, the white seems to be a little more reluctant.

Muscari is a great splash of colour, I was worried about invasiveness, but it is staying quite well contained.  Must not be ideal growing conditions, which might be working to my advantage.

Here is my small group of Pink Parasol Narcissus, they are very fancy with their frilly trumpets.  Bowing a little in the hot midday sun.

Moss Phlox is covered in blooms, wish I had planted these much earlier in my Garden's development.

 Now the race between the Tulips and Lilacs is on.  Both have great blooms forming, can't wait to see them!

Up next - The Daffodils.

The daffodils seemed to arrive early this year, I think they are my favorite spring bloom. 

If I could only grow 1 variety, it would be Cool Flame, the salmon coloured trumpets are so incredibly pretty.

Ice Follies line the driveway, unfortunately they face the wrong way for viewing.  It makes them seem a but uppity, but they are only following the sun.

The tall and reliable Dutch Master greet visitors as they approach the front door. 

Tulip foliage is going strong, they should make their appearance quite soon. :)
