Spring Garden 2013

The day started out as sunny and warm as a gardener could wish but by mid-afternoon the rain and thunder rolled in so dramatically that it felt like it must have been another day altogether.  The garden doesn’t mind though.

Rhododendron ‘Rothenburg’ is blooming and looking lovely with its underplantings of Erythronium ‘White Beauty.’  Magnolia ‘Elizabeth’ (soft yellow) is coming into bloom, taking over from the Magnolia denudata (crisp white).  The Trillium ovatum has been blooming for awhile now while the flowering Quince and the blue rhododendron are just starting to look lovely.  The Anemones and the Fritillarias are solid, if ephemeral, reminders that spring has sprung.  Too bad for all those gardeners with last frost dates in May (or worse).
