Fresh flowers

We're now enjoying grape hyacinths, more blue Dutch hyacinths, and deep-blue Dutch irises, all in the blue spectrum. We continue to see more and more volunteers of one or more varieties of morning glory. Other newcomers are Sun Disc, Grand Primo, and poet's narcissus. Pink wood hyacinths shot up leaves and then flowers in under a week on the oak motte. All spring bulbs mentioned previously continue to bloom, along with some mysteries of all sizes not mentioned previously. Paperwhites are nearly done, and this has not been a prolific year for Ice Follies, which had many bud stalks frozen solid.
