We are still ahead on the calendar for spring but I love all the spring flowers that are popping out. This hellebore and his neighboring primrose are great for the north side of the house.
Forsythia is one of the early shrubs to flower and this week I spotted an old stand in the empty lot next door! It was shining yellow among the vines and overgrown weeds out there. What more can you want from a shrub when it blooms so profusely in the overgrown woodland decades after it was planted?
Did I mention that the asparagus is coming up in the veggie garden too!
