  6. Nice! Our tulips have just started blooming. A frost got us last night though which may delay things.

  8. LOVE the epimedium! I have one, not as far along here as yours is ... they're so sturdy and reliable yet so delicate and fragile-looking.

  9. Thanks for the comments everybody!

    MMD, not exactly sure. They were from a hybrid collection mix.

    Rebecca, I changed the Blogger template. Not sure if I'm happy with it. The mulch came from the landfill over by the Tower.

  10. C.C., I am loving them too. I planted more varieties last year but I haven't seen blooms yet. They are very tough and very drought tolerant which is also a big plus.

  15. Beautiful! Epimedium is yet another plant that's been on my to-get list (getting longer every day). It looks so dainty but I've read that it's very tough.

  17. Love seeing the bright colors in your garden. I have blooms on my Alabama snow wreath you gave me. It is a lovely shrub and seems to like it's spot. Thanks for being the nice garden friend you are. Oh and I'm loving the Alabama Gardener magazine too!

  18. The hellebore looks similar to one I have called Red Lady. My dwarf iris are blooming. The tall bearded one I planted at ECM should be in bloom by Monday.

  19. Beautiful as always, Phillip - love the colors, especially the sweet Epidemium blossoms.

    Changing the template sounds like a very spring thing to do!

  20. Goodness Phillip, I envy you those double hellebores. I only have one double, and she's taking a long time to get going. This is her third year in the garden. Viburnum 'Mohawk' is a beauty too. Happy Spring. I've got so much to do. How about you?~~Dee
