In the pleasure grounds, and out of order

Today visible for the first time are leaves of Lilac Wonder species tulips. These leaves are usually the last species leaves to appear. There's also a wildly cut and fringed red anemone. The paperwhites in the first and so far only clump are holding up well, with many bloom stalks. There's another clump of those mystery two-tone jonquils with buds on it. There's one flower stalk (still with an unbroken bud) in Mack's flower bed among the clumps of Montopolis narcissi that came from Bastrop. The loquat flowers are still abuzz with bees and butterflies. Something has attracted a large flock of chickadees. Some of these flower appearances are usually made much later in the season.
