Today in My Garden

As expected, the much warmer temperatures have made a difference in the garden. The pansies and violas I planted last fall are starting to bloom again. Bulbs are exploding from the ground. The forecast is calling for highs in the 70s on four of the next seven days so the blooming trend will continue.

I'm not sure what these are. They're supposed to be saffron crocus and as such, should bloom in the fall. Don't let the dainty appearance fool you!

These little dwarf iris weren't even visible this weekend. Now they've popped up and exploded into bloom in several spots around the garden.

Finally, my Helleborus orientalis (aka Lenten Roses) are just starting to bloom. The dusty mauve-colored blooms are harder to photograph. Here's a good view of a white one.

And that's what's happening today in the garden of...
