Squeaky Green


I love the squeaky green look of Solomon's Seal and Hosta before their leaves unfurl.



And velvety primroses that invite you to touch to see if they are real.



Not much can compare with the nodding grace of new fern fronds.



Now I am off to the Northwest Perennial Alliance plant sale!

Those primroses look like something out of a cartoon -- they're adorable! I can understand why you'd need to touch them to make sure they're real. Happy GTS!

You're a bit ahead of me. My Solomon's Seal is just pushing their way up along with the wild Bloodroot. My big surprise was finding some Vinca in bloom that was protected by a large planter left upside down on the bed.

Beautiful! Those black primrose are so vivid and bold. I love them.

My Green Thumb Photo is shared, I hope you can drop by. Have a great Sunday.

Can you get me something from the plant sale...
I used to collect those ariculas at one time, even had them in a little theatre.

Ah Markie (you don't mind if I call you Markie, do you?) those DO seem to be ariculas and Not primula as I posted. Similar but not the same. And sorry Bubbs, I got home from the sale after I read your comment. By the by, is a picture of said theatre of ariculas at Repton96's photos on Flickr? http://www.flickr.com/photos/47891565@N00/275576713/in/photostream/

I just read the comment you left me....Mmmmmmm, how romantic to have the gallant father of your boyfriend pick you a gardenia. I love it.

Hope your Sunday treated you well.
