Grape Hyacinths, Bleeding Hearts, Daffodils, Christmas Fern, Solomon’s Seal, Clematis, Tulip Tree, Peonies. Daily Forecast – showers and temps as low as 34. Spring? 🙂
What latitude are you on, Judy? It looks like your garden and ours are at just the same stage–all kinds of promise (but chilly and overcast here, too)!

Longitude and Latitude = 43.1979° N, 70.8737° W. This weather has been the craziest thing I’ve seen. It rains, I run outside and work for two hours, and it starts raining again. Can you envision mud and filthy clothes? LOL
We’re at 44.41, so it’s very close. We are way behind on outside work for the same reasons–the ground is saturated! Things are growing, though!
Brr! Love the fern heads unfolding.
Glad to see your garden is growing! I planted bleeding heart seeds about 3 weeks ago and they haven’t sprouted yet. Do they just take a long time to sprout? I have more seeds so should I try again?
I’ve never tried Bleeding Hearts from seeds. I’ve only purchased plants. So, I did a little research, and it looks quite different than annuals. There are articles on doing it in the fall or soaking and sprouting in a refrigerator. Looks like they need some cold temps to sprout.
Judy, thank you for looking into it for me!
I have never heard of a tulip tree. How great is that!! And the Christmas fern looks like a plant of Walt Disney snails!!
My bleeding heart is growing by leaps and bounds. Why not? Rain, rain and more rain. Is grass supposed to “squish” when you walk on it? Lol.
Only hitting 50’s today and 32 tonight. Yes, FREEZING! We had to turn heat on this morning. That’s just not right!!
Your beautiful plants bring hope of warm, sunny days to come.
No, grass is not supposed to squish, but it is here too. Yes, we’re hitting 34 tonight. What the heck is going on. We’ve got the furnace on too because it just gets too darn cold without it. I’m looking for heat to bake my bones. 🙂
Beautiful! After 3 days of nonstop rain, I see hosta leaves poking up and that is so encouraging!
Spring, spring, spring! Lovely.
Beautiful flowers and blooms, Judy. This dip into the 30s can’t last…right? I mean, it can’t..can it? On the other hand, if you saw the story about Nordstrom’s, those muddy jeans might be worth 4 times what you paid for them 🙂
A beautiful collage of what’s growing in your garden.
I looked at your flowers and picked up my camera. It’s not a beautiful day here. Overcast and thinking about rain (again), but it ISN’T raining, yet. You inspired me. Turns out, over the past few days of nonstop rain, there has also been much blooming. I’m glad you inspired me!
Oh, yes, we know about The Squish here in Indiana. Apparently we’re headed into the 30s over the weekend, so I don’t even want to think what that means for you! Your photos are lovely, and most uplifting on this November day in May.
Brrr. It sounds a bit chilly where you are. Our glorious autumn continues, with warm sunny days and cool nights. I planted bulbs two weeks ago and they are already shooting. 😀
Looks like spring (if you ignore that chilly wind)!
I’m not sure what variety you grow, but your clematis looks way ahead of mine just ‘a couple of towns over.’ Do you cut it back at season’s end?
Funny you ask me that because I am usually ‘clematis challenged.’ I absolutely love them and have tried various things to improve their performance. Last year, I moved this one and two others forward a little in their beds to seek a little more sun. Two are loaded, and one died. I have two others on a full sun arbor that are about 6″ tall. I didn’t cut any of them back but do have to chuckle at the various results. 🙂
Oh, wow, things are getting ready to pop in your collage!
It’s so good to see growing things again, isn’t it? We are about at the same stage as you. Still very soggy here, though.
We had sun today, but more rain is on the way. Guess we’re never happy. We don’t want drought conditions but really want the sun. 🙂
Ahhh Judy – your green thumb makes me green with envy! I have been a plant killer as long as I can remember. But your beautiful results motivate me to keep trying!!!
Kind of like the ‘practice of medicine,’ gardening can work out if you learn from your mistakes. Boy, have I had a lot of learning. 🙂
I’m loving all these spring flowers – beautiful!
My goodness you are a good two weeks or more behind us here in Wales UK. All of our muscari are over and the cow parsley and bluebells are in full swing, my hostas are up and open ready to be gobbled by the slugs! Wishing you warmer weather for this weekend x
I missed your post last week, … but envious of your lovely spring flowers coming up!
Nature has awakened, appeared new growths, the greenness instead of brown. I love your vernal flowers, Judy!
Aww, there are some sweet buds and unfolding Christmas ferns. Judy, I hope you have a “mudroom” or back entryway where you can strip down out of wet, muddy clothes! I am hoping there’s sunshine and drying winds for you, to help you get the things you like doing in the garden completed! 🌱🌸🐝
