It was so cold for so long, most flowers curled in their toes and waited.
Now the white mandevilla has dropped the first round of blooms and the second set will open soon.
Pink mandevilla seem the madcaps of the genius.
They have been blooming since hung, only growing slowly.
These balloon flowers migrate around the triangle garden.
At the other end one summer, up here the next.
Toad made way for Laura's little herb garden.
Pig's nasturtiums have no blooms, yet.
Over to the serious growing!
My plan of crowding out the weeds is working.
Look how hard the grasses have worked to get through the pinks.
Come Monday, they will rue the effort.
Laura picked out this rose four years ago.
A tiny bush back then.
The rose on the trellis, beginning its ten foot climb.

Columbine. They have stayed contained for three years.
The flower tower is coming along. I added a sweet potato vine.
There are at least six fifteen dollar bearded iris growing here.
In three years, only one has bloomed.

The last anemone of the year.I am so pleased with all the little ground covers I've planted, most of whose names I do not recall.

The coral bells have started flower spikes.
Aunt Laura's iris, over in the corner, and the bleeding heart.
And, that's what's growing this week.
