Olympia is always the first aquilegia to bloom and it sure is a beauty.
The blooms are large and bright though the plant itself is low and modest.
Must plant more of these to the garden.
Some of the daffodils are still blooming. Most are already gone but not all.
They did give a good show this year and I am happy that I have managed to find so many different varieties over the years.
Daffodils are very easy to grow requiring almost nothing special. Just good soil and enough water and they will bloom each year.
After several beautiful days the winter decided to come back. The temperature is below the freezing point and we got some snow during the night.
Stonecrops are doing fine though. Even with the low temperatures they have managed to start the season.
Stonecrops are one of those plants which look interesting the whole summer. Light green during the spring and red long lasting blooms during the autumn.
The late lilies are starting to bloom.
The Red Flavour has done well up here in the north and bloomed faithfully over the years.
This year I am experimenting a new color and hopefully it will do as well as the red.
It has taken years but now I have lilies in each and every flowerbed that can survive the harsh coldness.
We are already enjoying the garden phloxes up here in the north.
My grandma always had garden phloxes blooming in her garden. Then we lost them for decades but luckily got some from a neighbor.
White ones are doing well and introduced a new color last year but it seems to be a late bloomer and for her to display the flowers we need to wait a bit longer.
