Gosh, it’s pretty in the garden today. At 81 degrees this afternoon in Des Moines, the weather is just plain crazy. I can’t believe how many things are blooming … the redbud is almost ready to burst … early daffodils are spent … pulmonaria, bleeding hearts and brunnera are in bloom or ready to unfurl. An early peony (Paeonia tenuifolia) looks like it’ll be blooming by the end of this week (a full month ahead of normal.)
Here’s a little show of what I saw in the garden today.
