Spring Sprouting

I love this time of year, everything is new, fresh and pretty. Here are a few things sprouting in my yard just yesterday.
New daylilies, beautiful two tone flowers. Yea! I was happy to see them growing back this year. Planted peonies last spring, hummm....white?
or is the other one white?

The last survivor of the Arbor Day trees, a redbud.

The goats rue sits dormant, doesn't it look like sumac?

My out of control forsythia.

It's so pretty close-up.

Another really strong peony, pink.

My mock orange has buds on it. Yea, again!

The bottle tree lives on.

A really nice clump of sedum.

A grouping of double, ruffled, orange day lilies.

The first year for ladies mantle.

And a first year for my two toned hosta.

My roses.....so full of buds and doing nicely considering the rocks that fall on them from year to year. I need to fix that wall this year, note to self.

Madame's salvaged daylilies are even sprouting while spending the winter planted in pots. She rescued them from her father.

I think my visitor appreciated all my sprouting.

Actually, he's waiting for me to plant the veggies so he can eat my seeds! C&G Design

Wow....you have much more than I do going on already! Every year I say I am going to add more plants and I get too busy or lazy or something? Good for you. Can't wait until tommorrow!!

Goat's rue, that is something I haven't heard of. What an interesting name.

Peonies are one of my favorites. This will be the first year for my new Sarah Burnhardt to bloom (I hope).

It is always nice when the sprouts start and we know in short time we will have blooms everywhere.

The snow was only messing with your brain, ha.... The crow needs something to scare him away. Get busy Miss Madame! We sold our Nintendo at a thrift shop when we lived in Germany. We had so much to do other then play games while in Europe. Can we say Beir and Wein tents? hee hee....

Wow, you really are quite a bit behind us. Amazing that the few miles make that much of a difference.
