The spring season is officially underway in my yard.
I love planting these \'super early bloomers\'.
They start blooming just when you\'re tiring of winter.
Here are some findings on today\'s yard survey:
1. A species crocus - don\'t recall name right now.
Beautiful brown markings on the back of the blooms.
2. An oddball witch hazel called Quasimodo - a dwarf.
The shrub is just 2ft tall now. Blooms are equally tiny.
Got to get up close to even notice them.
A shrub right up my alley.
3. Hellebores getting started.
4. Adonis amurensis. 5 eyes this year, just 2 fully open.
5. A double galanthus.
Those darn pendant blooms - the whole plant is 4 inches tall.
I hope you can appreciate the stand-on-your-head photography involved!
