I haven't posted in a while, largely because my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder has been hitting me really hard and often leaving me feeling exhausted and uninterested in communicating with the outside world during my free time. Still, I figured I should post a few pictures. These were taken about a week ago, so some of the bulbs have lost their flowers, while the other plants have grown some (but not as much as you would expect given the time of year).
My main garden area. I've inherited a sort of woodland/shade garden, with
hostas, blackberries, geraniums, barberries, lily of the valley, ferns, a few bulbs,
violets, and various other wildflowers scattered around underneath a large spruce
and a couple of small cherry trees, plus a lilac and a small fir.
Not much is blooming yet, but fortunately there are a few bulbs.
Here is a tulip and two hyacinths.
Here is a closeup of the tulip.
Here are the two hyacinths, with what I think are geraniums and violets coming up around them.
There are a few daffodils as well. I especially like the white one in the middle photo -
it's different from most daffodils that I've seen. Unfortunately, the daffodil flowers
pretty much shriveled up over the past week.
Most of the plants currently in my garden aren't noted for showy flowers, so it looks like I will have to add new plants of my own if I want more color. On the other hand, maybe there will be some surprises coming up - there are still some plants that I haven't identified.
