While I wait for the sun to warm

A hint of what to come with this magnolia bud - with the cold nights no wonder it wears a fur coat.

A few more days and the rhubarb will be ready.

Great shots Betty!
I haven't had a close look at our Magnolias for a day or two....M. stellata is usually the first to show colour.
I am about to go out and hope it is pleasant.....lots of digging to continue in our Plant Sale prep. It is going fairly well.
I must remeber to take a pic or two later.
We have a cute little pink Corydalis in bloom....a new one called 'George Baker'.


Cheers

Thanks all, with all the sun we have had lately, things are growing well. Rain coming which will just make things grow even faster and will give my aching muscles a rest.

The hypertufa was supposed to be a nice round ball but was so lopsided I drilled holes in it so I could put plants in it. I just started making things this spring and a couple of containers have turned out OK.

I have the odd scilla blooming and that's it. Your garden is coming along nicely; sure love those sunny daffodils. My rhubarb hasn't even broken through yet...
