Double primroses

We had a brief sunbreak yesterday (oh, the thrill of sunshine in Seattle!) and I found that some things were happening in the garden.

Almost spring

Seattle’s weather has been colder and wetter than normal. Here is a plum tree in my back yard, trying so hard to bloom, taken on a rare break in the rain.

Muscari

Muscari, or grape hyacinth, was one of the flowers I saw everywhere at the NW Flower & Garden show last week, along with fritillaria, or checkered tulips (see below). Their light blue color was very sweet to see, and will be perfect for an Easter nosegay. #NWFGS

Foxglove macro

The foxglove (digitalis) is blooming well this year. A little fertilizer doesn’t hurt, either.
