Early Spring Garden Pictures

With warmer temperatures and more sun, the garden is changing every day.
Chinese rhubarb. Its first leaves are beautiful:


It grew well in the container last season. 


Clematis montana got a haircut:





Japanese maples are awakening:


Anemone:



Another arch with Clematis montana. It receives less sun than the first one and is not as tangled as it.
But, I also gave it a cut.


The third arch supports a climbing rose.
The branches are needed to be placed horizontally to give more blooms:


Narcissus very often get some snow after they start blooming.
This year, instead of snow, they've been hit by hail twice already.



Pussy willow is finishing blooming:






Daphne is blooming for the first time in my garden. It was planted in 2013.






Linchen is a show star before the leaves come on the trees:


Moss enjoys cool moist weather:


Hellebore also likes our climate:



Grape hyacinths bring my favorite color to the garden:



Japanese ilex hedge reached the desired height and needs to be watched and trimmed timely:


Helleborus foetidus:


Camelia growing in the container has lots of blooms:



I hope you enjoy the signs of spring in your garden.

Fragments of some miniature gardens at NWFGS - 2014



Succulents, tropicals and orchids were the focus of several small space gardens at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle.


Air plants (Tillandsia) could be seen here and in the show's marketplace too. 




Nice post by Karen Chapman about the display 'Beyond The Potted Plant' is HERE


*
A miniature garden for those who like fairies and gnomes:









*
Orchids in frames were in agreement with this year's theme "Art in Bloom'':







*
This tropical garden would fit well on a big balcony or a porch: 








*
There never could be too many Orchids...







Beautiful wooden pots for orchids were for sale at the show's marketplace.










Have a great weekend!
