Beautiful spring day in the garden.

The tulips are finally happening. They came up pretty short probably because they went in so late but they look wonderful nonetheless. In the last picture you can see the Blackjack Fig I put in a week or two ago just leafing out. YaY! It's planted on the north side of the shed but it's got a dainty little lean to it so with some pruning it will end up with its head in the sun and look better for it. The Kerria japonica is the star these days though.... I planted a 5 gal. in the... summer? fall? spring? well sometime last year into a half wine barrel with lots of compost and potting soil. It sure took off! Because the wonderful little yellow pom-poms are on such wispy stems it gives the effect of the flowers just floating in midair which makes it look so delicate they might just blow away in the breeze. sigh...
