First Flowers

Well, the plum tree is in full bloom.  Nary a bee around. But hey, fruit is overrated, right?

Spring has arrived so much earlier than usual around the Northwest.  My perennial garden is no exception.  Here's what's happening in my yard today -- a good month ahead of schedule.

The plum -- you can smell it when you walk into the yard.


Grape hyacinths along the path.

Euphorbia and alyssum.
The double-flowering Japanese kerria japonica, almost open.

Forsythia blooming -- and threatening to.
