|Welcome to Havenwood!|
Many flowers that were doing so well, so soon... too soon... did meet a cruel end with the frost.
The star magnolia blooms were blackened after one day of blooming all around our town. The taller daffodils did not stand up as well to the snow that covered them soon after they were full out, but the shorter ones have stood the test. The pretty star of Bethlehem, that I recently posted, were soon snuffed out with cold. But still, the garden and the gardener marches on...
There are still a few pretties to see today for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day in our western PA garden.
|Always a favorite, Helleborus orientalis 'Carousel' group. The most floriferous Lenten rose in my garden.|
|Narcissus 'Jet Fire' has triumphed against the snow and 19F and is still standing and brightening our new Daffodil Dell.|
|Narcissus 'Cassata' is my new favorite daff so far this year, also planted out in our Daffodil Dell.|
|The stems of purple ninebark, Physocarpus opulifolius, were glowing in the April sunrise this morning in the Rose Garden.|
|White Anemone blanda with the hairy foliage of oriental poppies looks so lovely at our first garden, Gilmore Gardens.|
|Fritillaria meleagris, the snakeshead fritillary, is coming up in our Woodland. Each flower has it own allure, all being a little bit different in pattern and stage of development.|
|Dainty pink and yellow primroses set out in a new little circle bed under my Calycanthus 'Hartlage Wine'|
Spring is always my favorite: Pretty flowers abound and there is a whole season of beautiful color still to come.
Sweet spring to you,
