  1. beautiful photos.. I am so happy that spring is coming and I will be able to get out in the yard.. can not wait to get it all bulldozed and then start putting plants in

  2. As a “Helen”, I’ve had my eye on ‘Jelena’ in the abstract. Yours looks truly wonderful. Yes, it’s my plantoholic tendencies showing through. Before I indulge, I’ll need to map it all out — I know, I know. But one by the front door would be splendid. It isn’t scented, though, is it?

    • Hi Helen,
      Thanks for commenting on my blog. All of those pics were taken at the Seattle Arboretum, wish I had all that in my garden, but it’s way too small. ‘Jelena’ has a wee bit of a fragrance but nothing to be terribly excited about, there are other varieties that are much more fragrant. However, none with the dramatic burnt orange that you get with ‘Jelena’- that’s why I like her!
