Several End Of March Garden Pictures

Just several pictures showing that spring is underway in the Pacific Northwest.

One flower? Really?
Dear Rhododendron, I suspect that the Arborvitae trees bother you with their roots.
That is why I'll give you one more chance - move you somewhere else.

Weeping Hemlock  - a new addition.

Last year picture
These two metal chairs stood here a couple of seasons with no purpose, just for a look.
I moved them so I could sit on them and face my Terrace Garden. 
Now, I like it! I can relax and not only enjoy the plants in front of me, 
but also plan any needed changes:

Magnolia time!


Larix decidua 'Pendula', Weeping Larch 

Arum italicum is under arrest!
It started to spread under the trees in the right border so I decided to put it into a container.

This Brunnera is growing in a spot, from which I removed the plant a couple of seasons ago.
I guess a piece of root was left and gave this new growth. Cool!

Someone might find the grass in the right pot unattractive, but it's loved by our dogs.
I put the pot on the ground, and they grab a piece of it every time they pass by.

While power washing our driveway, the moss was almost removed from this big pot; however, we stopped the process just in time.
I find moss nice and will let it stay on the pot until it gets brown in summer.


Fern, Oxalis and Solomon Seal

Chinese Rhubarb 

 Camellia japonica 'Grandiflora Rosea'

At last, I planted this strawberry pot with strawberries! I used to plant succulents here.

Thank you for visiting and have a Happy Easter!

  1. Hi Tatyana, I loved seeing these new photos from your spring garden! It is truly a magical place that you have created! The magnolias seem to be especially beautiful and prolific in your neck of the woods. I love the leaves of the Arum italicum, at least you gave it a very nice prison ;-)!
    Wishing you a very Happy Easter!
    Warm regards,

  2. Your garden is full of beauty and whimsy. I like your weeping hemlock and weeping larch; I have a weeping plum and weeping mulberry. And the magnolia and how you have a pot of grass for your dogs.

  3. Happy Easter, Tatyana! I love moss on pots too. Love what you did with your Arum. I have a couple of clumps of it, and they have never spread, the clumps just get bigger every year.

  4. Wow! You have such a lovely place! It is cool and refreshing filled with so much beauty.

    Loved that magnolia.

    Happy Spring ~ FlowerLady

  5. Springtime in your garden is truly a special event! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos. I have a rhododendron that did not bloom at all for years, but I kept it because I love the foliage. Last year it put out a single amazing bloom. This year there are three! Maybe it just needed to mature - and perhaps it will be it full of blooms next year!

  6. I always enjoy your Tatyana, and thank you so much for sharing it in your lovely photo's.
    Happy Easter Monday!

  7. Beautiful Tatyana, your garden is already magnificant green. Magnolia time just started here, flowers just opened the last few days. Epimedium already in flower and wonderful fern with Oxalis. Funny, how you restricted the Arum italicum, but quite a good idea for they are prolifical spreaders.

  8. Happy Easter and thank you for posting such beautiful pictures.

  9. A cage is a good idea for Arum, but knowing that plant you may still want to keep your spade sharp.

  10. The magnolias here in Ohio have been glorious the last week or so! Normally, they aren't a good choice for this area, because early warmth always tricks them into bloom, then a frost always turns their flowers to mush. But this year, conditions have been perfect, and they made our beautiful Easter Sunday even more perfect.

  11. I am in zone 8a like you but sunset climate zone of 31 ;( Oh, how I wish I could grow the beauties you do. Love your garden.

  12. Hoping you had a wonderful Easter! Here's to a great April spring....your pictures are so rich in foliage and I adore the woods you have!

  13. Beautiful garden. I love the Grandiflora Rosea, just like roses!

  14. This is gorgeous! Whenever I visit your blog I realize how great the PNW is for gardening. Happy Easter season!

  15. Beautiful as always! I love that camellia. :o)


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
