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

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.
