This morning, Friday, the rain stopped. We enjoyed a view of The Mountain as we drove to breakfast. Then back at home, we headed out for a walk about 11:00. We got in our 3.75 miles under darkening skies. As soon as we got back home I grabbed my camera to take some garden photos of what's blooming. The rain was beginning to fall as I finished the rounds of the garden.
It's now the middle of the afternoon. The rain is falling steadily. I have completed my physical therapy exercises, had lunch and read the newspaper, called my sister, read political editorials in line, and just now finished editing my garden photos. Here we go.
Camellia grown from a cutting from the farm in Oregon where I grew up
Daffodils and violets
Native red flowering currant
pink flowering pulmonaria
A newer variety of forsythia that we transplanted last spring
Mouse plant - Arisarium proboscideum
Native Indian plum
One of many kinds of epimedium
Leucojum (summer snowdrop)
Camellia - the leaves are coated with pollen from the evergreen trees and the trees with catkins. Aaaaa-choo!
Another variety of pulmonaria
White camellia from a cutting from a neighbor, long ago
A long forgotten variety of rhododendron
Spring blooming cyclamen are just about done
White flowering pulmonaria
A fancy red trillium emerging from the deep
Native Oregon Grape. It will be opening to yellow flowers soon, much earlier than usual.
From the house, as the rain falls, we are enjoying watching the leaf buds burst on the fern leaf full moon maple.
And there you have it, the mid-March garden tour. Thanks for visiting.
