The Spring Gardens 2015

 Teddy and I took a walk down to the lower gardens to see how things are coming along.

 I love seeing the hostas unfurl.

 Strawberries.

 The forests ferny floor.

 Dandelions...I am trying not to hate them.

 Some of my Mayflowers.

 Wood poppies.

 Painted fern.

 Looking up the steps after the rain.

 My hellebore's have naturalized and they are everywhere.

 They are especially popping up in my pachysandra.

 My parsnips came back from last year.

 Currents.

 Apple blossoms.

 That is Toadflax growing right in front of the arborvitaes.  They were originally planted all the way on the other side of the garden.

 Oakleaf Hydrangeas.

 I let the leaves decay naturally since most of my space is woods.

Texas bluebells.
 Solomon's Seal.

 Teddy the Chow Chow.

Phlox.
