Spring in a Barrow

Crescent Colours 'Wasabi' arrived in the mail Monday. 

So I was able to fill in one of the Samsarah mittens Monday evening.
One down - one to go.

It's Tuesday and it's time for a Garden Party.

First let me present "Spring in a (Wheel) Barrow".
I have nine pots including: Muscari latifolium, Muscari 'Ocean Magic', a mix of Muscari and Narcissus, Tulips 'Border Legend', and Narcissus 'Chinese Sacred Lilies'.  I've had these pots outside - under the eaves.  Now it's time to move them to the Front Porch where I can enjoy them.  

These must be the 'Chinese Sacred Lilies'.

And this is one of the Muscaris.

Some things have over-wintered well, like this primula. 

And some things are ready to grow - like these peas. 

This pale yellow Witch Hazel has come into its own...

As has this pale yellow Hellebore. 

Ah snowdrops - we bought this clump two weeks ago at NW Garden Nursery. 

The earliest of daffodils, 'Tete-a-Tete', are in full bloom now.
The gray bleakness of December has been superceded by the color of February.

I love your stitching and your flowers. We have no flowers coming up yet. Where do you live? More South? I'm in Va. I want to garden so much, but have no idea what to do.

Very pretty colors in this one, Beth!

Nice to see some daffodils in bloom--ours probably won't be out for another 3 or 4 weeks!

The mitten adoragble! I love seeing your plants. Did you buy starts at the nursery for the Muscari? I love that plant. All of a sudden we are so cold up here. On Sun. I bought a lovely white hellebore and not sure if I should hold off planting until the weather gets more seasonal.Thanks for sharing the beauty!
