Bright White on a Dark Day

It is dreary and misty here, but I had to get out.

The garden calls despite the weather.

Snowflake, Leucojum

The whites were bright today.

White by the Gate, Camellia japonica

This is their time to shine.

Starflower (ipheion), ‘Albert Castillo’

It is lovely to spy some white on a dark day.


Seeing Stars

Starflowers are in full bloom today.


This variety of ipheion is named ‘Alberto Castillo.’


Some little forager gave this bunch a trim last week.


The petals have lovely green and brown stripes down their backsides.


I love seeing stars!



Bunnies out, Bulbs up

I have been telling folks that my bunnies are as big as the neighbors’ beagle. Now I have a photo to prove it. Thankfully, I had my camera with me photographing bulbs when this encounter went down.

Charlotte standing her ground.

Barley. To dig or not to dig? That is the question.

Alberto Costello Starflower

Anemone blanda

I spent every day last week sliding up and down the hills on cardboard.

No, not for amusement!     I’ve been digging weeds.

Spring is just around the corner in NC.  Wait for it………

Follow the Flower to spring.
