It looks like a true blue to me but I know the "blue police" out there will argue not .. blue shmooooo ! .. I love it all the same : )
Then there was a stirring underground et voile` log fern awakens and the fiddle heads begin !
Ivory Prince is recovering from "haircuts" I have given .. now that is one brave uncomplaining hellebore !
This is a ghost of a plant that arrived from Henry Fields "Apricot Blush" hellebore .. I was in a panic to plant the poor wee soul .. fingers crossed !
The other hellebore from last years surprise package from Andrea seem to be doing very well : )
Odd flower .. don't ya' think ?? well .. it is odd isn't it ?
Belongs to my Sutherland Gold Elderberry .. which is a beautiful cut-leaf cultivar .. odd colours in Spring but is lush and gorgeously chartreuse gold when smiling later on .
Aquilegia canadensis is a gorgeous little columbine I am so glad to have planted .. it truly is such a sweet plant you have to smile when you see it every time !
Paired with a pretty Japanese Painted fern "Applecourt" it is a match : )
That delicate yellow is almost soothing ?
I really like that cool white colour in a hot spot such as this raised bed.
It is chaotic and CRAZY here in my garden right now .. the upheaval with the landscaping is stressful .. especially when all you want to do is play in your garden and admire your plants .. and .. get ready for the BUG fights to come .. I can almost hear those aphids and the dreaded BEETLES coming !!!! EEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKK !!!
