Spring Has Sprung

Viola adunca, Early Blue Violet

We have finally, finally gotten a little welcome sunshine.  We can see the flowering plants in the nursery and gardens respond within hours to the extra light and warmth.  Of course, weeds do too but we won’t think about that right now.  It is such a busy time in the nursery that they will just have to wait.

There isn’t even enough time to write a proper blog but I’d like to share a few recent plant photos.

The Oregon Iris, Iris tenax
The Pacific Coast Irises are beginning their flowering period and I expect some great flowers in the coming weeks. I hope to devote an entire blog to this topic in early May.
