April 20, 2012 - Small Beauties and more!

Every day, there's something new to see. I had cut back all my Barrenwort and was worried that I didn't see anything coming up. But yesterday, both colours had returned!! How tiny and beautiful!

First the little yellow one - Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum'

The dark pink one appeared as well - Epimedium rubrum

Several new daffodils opened up:

The spectacularly exotic 'Tahiti'

And cute little 'Suzy' with its orange centre


Bright yellow Euphorbia (or Spurge)

And here come the Hostas!!

Hi Astrid, I love your Epimediums, especially the pinker one! They are such tiny treasures aren't they? I have only one and must get some more. The Tahiti daffodil is lovely too. The colors are so vivid.

Hi Jennifer
I was so worried about the Epimedium! I had cut them back to the ground and didn't see anything coming up for a long time!! But then there they were! And without last year's old growth obscuring the view, the flowers were so much easier to see and to photograph.
I may put in more Thalia and Tahiti daffodils next year - they are my ultimate favourites!

I first planted epimediums only a couple years ago, and now they are a favorite. Yours look great! I'm glad to see that you are having a very pretty spring with lots of blooms. I love the Tahiti daffodil!
