Here are the two primroses I gave Meg for Valentines Day. We never know if they will survive our hot dry summers. I have one that is at least 10 years old, many others have not fared so well here.
Both of these primroses have huge blooms, hope we'll see them in the yard for years to come.
This is one of the helleborus niger that the buds were iced over many times this winter. It was all white now changing to pink. The other Helleborus niger double we bought last year did not make it....
This hellebore was brought over from Meg's yard several years ago. The buds are looking great and you can see where I pruned away the old leaves.
Crocus 'blue bird', this is the second species of crocus to bloom here this year. Looks like these have had some bulb losses, much thinner than last year.
