The garden is waking up

Yoshino Cherry
My last post was exactly one month ago and I was posting photos of the snow. A lot has changed in just a few weeks and it is beginning to look a lot like Spring! A cold front brought rain and colder temperatures today but the first part of the week was great. I have been pruning and mulching. 

Here are a few photos taken yesterday -

Jacob's Ladder "Stairway to Heaven"
 
Star Magnolia

Anenome nemerosa
Epimedium

Saucer Magnolia "Rustica Rubra"





Camellia "Taylor's Perfection"
