Posting has been light due to many other obligations – chairing our garden club plant sale, organizing and hosting a baby shower for my grandson-to-be, helping our son and daughter- in-law move into their first home, and breaking my kneecap.  I managed to take a few photos of the garden and finally downloaded them.  The cool spring has allowed a long season for the early bloomers.

Trillium pusillum is a miniature trillium


Iris koreana






and other spring beauties


The bog I planted last year did well over the winter, and I was delighted to see the Butterwort – Pinguicula primuliflora blossoming.  This is the plant with the lime green leaves and purple flowers. I saw it growing wild in Scotland and fell in love with it.   When I saw this plant at Cady’s Falls Nursery in Hyde Park, VT last summer, I had to have it.   Here it is with a beautiful Epimedium  – ‘Wildfire’


These pansies reseeded themselves in the front walk .  They had been planted in pots by the steps last year…


I’m battling rabbits and chipmunks at the moment… but the rock garden is looking pretty right now.
