At last! We hit a whooping 45 F today and the first alpine finally opened....two in fact. Here is Draba brunifolium.
My first alpines for 2007
Wow! A nice selection, Todd. Whatever holds those beauties in suspension can't be all bad. What a beautiful true, true blue.
Now this forum will be popping with color! Spring has finally arrived in New Brunswick.
Thanks Todd - they are wonderful pictures, especially that gorgeous primula. Can't
wait to see more.
Newfoundland Tammy, I'm in Newfoundland....but spring has hit New Brunswick too....if only we had some alpine growers there!
Those flowers that tolerate the cold weather to bloom are so beautiful! They are full of the energy of life!
Oops. (how does one do a red faced emoticon here anyway?)
I surprised Dave hasn't included emoticons on DG. Most other forums do.
I've missed all the early spring postings because I've been so busy starting up my new rose & cottage gardens. but it's all the more fun to catch up. always love to see your postings Todd. and I always make notes :0)
They are so beautiful!! Finally, it is the biginning of a flowering season, isn't it?
It's early summer weather in here. I'd like to send the heat for you:) Saxifraga versiculata is new for me. The silver green leaves and exquisite white flowers are very nice combination.
June yours is so much more vibrant than mine. I have a couple of pale pink ones but the rest are this dull purple-pink. They grow gang-busters in my garden.
That's one gorgeous primula! The leaves look almost succulent.
My corydalis solida are fairly dull colored also. But they are still cute. I always wondered about some of the strains out there. Beth Evens is sure worth it!
Meanwhile, I am enjoying EVERY photo posted on this forum. Thanks All!
Todd, I love the color on the primula!
Tam, the aubretia is lovely. I have some seeds started and my fingers crossed
I've had good success with Aubretia from seed. I should start more! They are sure pretty.
Somehow too easy to be a "real" rock garden plant though. LOL
I picked up a couple of cute sax's today. I'll be posting pic when they bloom.
A vulgaris, Todd? A fine crop of hairs too, and I'm not trying to be funny. It's the most endearing quality of pulsatilla's, I think.
beautiful plants, Todd. the color on the pulsatilla is wonderful.
Tam, funny about the aubretia. I was kind of thinking the same thing.
