The long-suffering azaleas are blooming like crazy now. I'm having a hard time capturing the color, but if you're a wine drinker, it's similar to the color of beaujolais. I haven't seen this color much, so it's a nice surprise (after FOUR YEARS of waiting to see the bloom color!).
Looks like we'll have a bumper crop of strawberries this year, if I can keep the slugs away. I need to put out beer traps stat!
This naked lady (belladonna lily) foliage is crazy huge! I planted the bulbs last year and got nothing - no foliage, no blooms. I was sure the squirrels got them. 1 for me!
These asters probably need to be divided about now.
Black and blue sage has come back with an almost disturbing vigor, all over the place! Oh well, there are worse things to spread.
There are still a few new daffodils opening.
Hostas bought last spring at the annual master gardener's sale appeared to die from the heat last year, but have really healthy new growth now.
I've mentioned the "two story camellia" before, and here it is in bloom:
99% of the blooms are pink, but there's always one or two white ones. For perspective on the size of this thing, Scott is 6'4":
For those of you who have been eagerly waiting (ha ha) for our entries into my family's annual Easter Egg Contest, here you go....
Scott's Harry Potter, and my Hedwig (Harry's owl).
