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!


  1. It sounds like our gardens are almost at the same satge now, although my Goldheart dicentra buds are juuuuust showing.

  2. Hi Rebecca. Your spring blooms are so pretty. The Pink Parasol Narcissus are just the prettiest things. My spring blooms went much to fast this year. Love the Bleeding Hearts too. Enjoy your blooms they go so fast. LOL!

  3. Your garden is filling with colour - so nice! I especially love the pretty Jack Frost. Enjoy this exciting time! :)

  4. They are wonderfully colourful and happy looking! Rebecca, do the fancier daffodils, like the pink ones live long?


  5. Totally gorgeous Rebecca..so wonderful to see the garden full of beauty and life.Those flwoering plum blossoms are divine..and everything looks beautiful!

    I can't wait to start garden-blogging more when mine comes in bloom( we are late this year for spring!)..and we really must do the rainbow gardeners and blue gardening memes this summer again if you like!
    Happy Spring..enjoy your garden magic!

  6. Oh, you're way ahead of me ! Very nice !

  7. Hi Rebecca, My white bleeding heart was not as quick to establish as the standard pink one as well. Love your Pink Parasol Narcissus!

  8. Ok, so I'm not the only one that's been unable to get to the computer! Hope all is well. Let's get caught up on each other's gardens when they are frozen solid.


  9. I finally figured out how to comment on Blogger Blogs without a popup comment box. I had to switch browsers for them, as my regular browser wasn't working on them.

    I've been dreaming about early spring bulbs, as everything outside has been buried for a while now. I'm eager to see the Brunnera, bleeding hearts and Muscari, just like in your photos.

    I hope that everything is well for you. Have a wonderful 2013, and a great gardening year.
