AM Snow and PM Spring in the Garden Today March 23, 2012

Other than the sounds of snow thawing and water draining out of the unbelievably soggy lawn, you would never know that I woke up to snow this morning at 7:30am. It was a winter wonderland. Not an altogether happy one on my part, having just come back from a month away, where it was 70 in Philadelphia for 2 weeks and then 80 in Houston for almost another week. But, considering it is March in my beloved Seattle ‘Burbs, I know better than to whine. Much. :-)

Here are some pics from the garden today. Clearly, my Euphorbia’s of ALL flavors are glorious in their Pre-Easter nodding fashion. The Hebe’s  and Heuchera are pulling their weight too, and my winter container designs are quite striking in the early spring sun. I’m not sure how much of a hurry I may be in to trade them in just yet. Enjoy!

    I need more euphorbias! They look so pretty this time of year.

      Deirdre- YES you DO need more Euphorbias! How did you go this long without lots and lots? LOL One of my TOP go-to plants year round. Add in the Heuchera’s and Hellebores and I’m in heaven.

  3. Beautiful photos! I love gardening and landscaping so much I started my own landscaping business.

    You’ve inspired me to start looking for a Heuchera to add to my garden this year. All your images demonstrate such balanced use of texture and color.

      Wonderful! Be sure to learn sun from shade cultivars and which can be flexible.
      Also, they need dividing every other year or two. Have fun with those that are long
      blooming as well.

  5. Wow some really lovely images here, so vibrant. I love the blue glass bird. Where did you get it from?
