It was a lovely weekend with temps in the upper 60’s and lots of sunshine, perfect weather for coaxing early bloomers.
The Muscari below will soon be yanked out in perhaps a vain attempt to discourage it and the Bethlehem Stars that always seem to find their ways into every garden. But the hellebores are a welcomed presence and they are looking very healthy.
The new brick pathways in the Secret Garden held up well during the winter. I need to add more paving sand and bring in more edging rocks, but as soon as the soil warms up, I will start to put some edging plants in along its borders.
The old magnolia in the front is starting to show a little color. I was in New York last week and all the magnolias in Central Park were blooming. Lovely!
