And will soon look like this:
The buds on the Viburnum ‘Aurora’ are oh so subtly transforming:
Will soon look this this:
And then BOOM, you get this beauty:
The Iberis ‘Snowflake’ (Candytuft) is just starting to show it’s new red growth:
Which will explode into this in no time:
The Phlox subulata ‘Emerald Blue’ (Creeping phlox) is also now showing its new reddish growth:
Soon to be followed by this:
And ultimately this:
This pile of green mush means little now:
But it foreshadows the beautiful blooms of the Lobelia siphilitica:
And finally, I can spot the buds forming on the Crataegus ‘Winter King’ (Hawthorn):
And cannot wait to see the blooms up close and personal for the first time in a few weeks (I had this tree planted last spring).
Ladies and gentleman, the end is near. Be very excited.
