Goldflame spirea as it began to leaf out.
You can sure tell where it got its name.
That was 10 days ago and below is NOW! WOW!
Goldmound spirea is almost yellow. It seems to glow when the sun spotlights it.
While looking at the new growth tips on the Anthony Waterer spirea, I came across this garden visitor. I have really been seeing a lot of ladybugs this spring, especially on the spireas.
As the yellow flowers fade on the epimedium, the new foliage begins to grow.
Pestemon husker red - I found 3 of these on clearance last fall. I was on the lookout for them after having seen pictures on several garden blogs. The foliage is great!
The bengal tiger cannas are emerging.
Red knockout rose has stunning red and green foliage.
The foliage star in my garden in April is the red tipped photinia.
Enjoy your spring and the moderate temperatures. Hope you all are spending lots of time outdoors! You don't have to work in a garden to observe and enjoy nature.
