The last week of April is here. Looking back on the blog at last April, everything looks to have returned to a normal schedule. The same things blooming last year at this time are blooming now. The weathers did return to a more normal cool after that mini heat wave.
I'm left wondering if, uh, gardeners might be a bit hyper sensitive to the proper flow of things. At the least I deserve a pass until I have been in this new zone for a full decade.
The Fothergilla is now in full bloom. The spring flowers and fall color are this shrubs best features.
Bloodroot, Sanguinaria canadensis, goes all textural leaf after the brief bloom period.
I think this is my favorite deciduous azalea and it has a lot to do with its location. The backdrop really makes it stand out.
Yikes! This azalea scares me. There are several red leaved barberries right next to it, but that isn't near enough to tone this thing down a notch.
White Spanish Bluebells, Hyacinthoides hispanica. They are just beginning.
The end of April is the time of Dogwoods. I need to try and remember that.
All the rotations are on schedule, as it should be.
