Pinks and Blues
This Okame Cherry tree was purchased at a local nursery a few years ago and is my only flowering backyard tree as of now.
Even though it's not as full as I would like because of the shade,it still adds much needed life to the backyard for spring.
My husband insists on surprising me with plants etc. for the garden. I can't seem to stop him even though I start by saying "would you like me to choose what tomato plants you're gonna grow each year honey "? This doesn't work so I've since gave up !! Anyway this one he purchased without approval... called a Camellia Japonica. Have to reluctantly admit ...is a pleasant surprise. Most of his ideas are NOT the case. :( But must give credit when due.
It actually gets a little too much sun but I'm hoping it will continue to adjust.
The Sedum Dragons Blood is an odd plant but I think it's pretty cool looking.
Jetfire Daffodil Narcissus all opened up.
Anybody know what these are?
Deadnettle-Lamium 'Pink Pewter' (I have everywhere)in the back and a few Muscari-Grape Hyacinth under the Douglas fir tree is nice color for passers-bye in front of house.
Forgot to add this Blue jay to my last post on Winter Birds.
