I returned this afternoon from another short trip with the rain coming in spurts for the rest of the afternoon. We had had a bird bath full of rain while I was gone and the Hepatica and Shooting Stars that we planted in the woods this past weekend seem to be doing fine. What I did find in the front yard were some Fritillaria that seemed to be enjoying the rain.
I also noticed quite a number of flowers appearing on the little Rue Anemone.
And the violet version of the Chilean Crocus has finally shown it’s face.
In between rain showers I also went down into the woods to check on the Bellworts.
I keep being nervous the deer will find these little beauties, but so far, so good.
While in the woods I discovered a particularly nice set of daffodils growing next to the old bench.
As it turns out these are tazetas that are not even supposed to be hardy here.
Usually these are grown in the south or for forcing.
Here’s my harvest from the walk through the daffodils that are coming in right now.
We bring in a batch like this every other day and there are still many more outside.
