The weather is very mild by me, in fact it's downright hot, almost like June. All the small Spring flowers are blooming; I don't know half their names and don't care -- they just pop up wherever they want. They're among my favorites, blooming cheerily, and in ways that other flowers in my garden just can't match.
Almost all my daffodils and Hyacinth survived the winter and are exulting in the early warmth. The flowering quince is ready to burst. Likewise for the Dogwoods. I don't care if every garden in NJ has a Dogwood -- I love them. When they're full of blooms they look like they're covered in snow. The pussy-willow across the brook is blooming. Just overnight, I found scattered like confetti little white blooms across the front lawn. Forsythia, of course, are also blooming. I know it's a little early, but I couldn't resist planting another foxglove by the potting shed, and also a couple of Jacob's Ladders for my very humble (right now) shade garden, and a couple of Blue Spruce Sedum by the brook. I'm also trying a few containers which I purchased cheaply over the winter, but I just don't think I have the eye for container planting. My Primrose survived a deer attack, and actually rebloomed. Everything's growing by the minute.
