The display continues
Newcomers to the pleasure grounds include a red bluebonnet (not seen for a while), several Johnny jump-ups from volunteer seed popping up and blooming in strange places, several kinds of lettuce volunteers in odd locations, a handsome deep pink Dutch tulip benefiting from the winter chills, many colors of ranunculus, the fancier and shorter kind of allium with the green center, the first firewheel, and the first open flower on one of our one-dollar clematis plants. We're about to enjoy yellow Dutch iris, but no flowers are yet open. We continue to see many mysterious narcissi and tazettas. Both volunteer and deliberately sown morning glories are appearing in various places.
