Tulip Season

The tulips are in peak bloom right now in the front yard.  I have a few later blooming types, but not as many as the 'Salmon Impression' and 'Jaap Groot' above.

A couple of weeks ago the front yard looked like this - turning green, but not very colorful.

This week it's full of color from the tulips and the 'Emerald Blue' creeping phlox.

I recently divided and transplanted several more 'Pink Tea Cup' Lenton roses (Helleborus) around the front flower beds.  They're at the end of their bloom season now.

Also blooming now are fluffy mounds of 'White Splendor' windflower (Anemone blanda).

A new 'Little Devil' ninebark (Physocarpus) adds maroon color to the scene.  I also planted several 'Mahogany' coral bells (Heuchera) around the front beds.  I like the way these plants connect the home to the yard by echoing the color of the shutters.

The 'Coral Supreme' peonies are lovely in leaf at the back of this photo, and in a couple of weeks they'll start adding their own bright color to the view.
