Bloom Day March 2012

Photos snapped in haste between storms.

Dicentra..common but a reliable spring indicator. So fact that fleshy action is one of my favorite attributes of spring.

 Ornamental kale..I let it stretch and bloom--is there anything better than purple and yellow ?


Tulips ! Pink Impression, the only one to naturalize here ; it's been in the ground for at least 10 years. soldiers on. And it's blue.

Thanks to Carol and her assistants the Garden Fairies.
