The phlox in the curb garden on the other side of the driveway is brilliant in the morning sun.
As the plant matures it seems to flow as it spreads out. I like it for its intense color and length of bloom.
Always an earlier bloomer is this rhododendron. It looks lonely now since his mate died off a couple of years ago.
In the same bed Solomon's Seal is emerging. It reminds me of porpoises breaking the surface of the ocean. It seems to like this spot as it is spreading more rapidly than I expected.
The Bergenia in the backyard is blooming better than I think it ever has.
I'm surprised that the Veronica has survived since it shares the same spot with hardy Geranium, Primrose and Creeping Charlie.
And the last flower to share tonight is a Lenten Rose. I like the newer varieties better since they hold their flowers more upright . I need to reach down to see the flower but it is still a pretty plant. I've moved them a lot trying to find a spot that they like and I like.
