Hellebores. I hated it over winet but love it once it began blooming.
Last summer I took an entire branch of lavender, stuck it in the ground and hoped for the best. It's doing really well. I seem the most success when I completely ignore the rules for cuttings and just do what feels right.
The hostas are well on their way in May.
Primroses are lovely in May.
Apr 27 Bleeding Heart is gorgeous.
The marguerites over wintered beautifully. That's never happened before. They began blooming in March. I know they like the cool weather but they've been exceptional. Photo 2 of 2
