The first photo is a red (looks dark purple) hellebore--a couple of my other hellebores have buds on them, too. I brought all of them with me from Cabot when I moved last March so I was pleased that they are doing well and even blooming this season!
the 2nd photo shows some of the sedum which I also brought with me. Kathy Ann originally gave this to me. It is either Autumn Joy or Autumn Fire--I have both but won't know which one this is until it blooms.
the 3rd photo shows a larger view of the Japonica (flowering quince) shrub which I posted on the previous thread.
