  5. One of those first photos looks like Anemone nemerosa 'Vestal', which I ordered from Heronswood this spring. I'm still waiting for it to grow from its bareroot state, but that photo makes me excited for when it's established. So pretty!

  6. Oh wow Tatyana! They have some gorgeous plants in those gardens. I love the red trilliums. I would love to walk through those gardens.I would probably be drooling all over the plants. LOL! Have a wonderful week and coming weekend.

  7. Beautiful garden! It demonstrates what a variety of beautiful plants will grow in a woodland. My dream garden! I especially love the trilliums, which is a different variety from the native plant that grows in my woodland here.

  8. Beautiful, simply beautiful.
