Things are looking good!

Did I post about the impatiens my friend Beth sent me? She grew them from seeds, that her friend has harvested and grown for 20 years! She sent me 4 plants in the mail, 2 didn't survive, but the two that did are doing pretty well, and blooming! Thanks, Beth!

The edelweiss has been blooming for a while now, so here's a pic. It lives under our rose bushes.

I planted this bunny tail grass last year, and didn't think it was a perennial, but it came back!

Um, yeah. I planted these rudbeckia two years ago, and they did not come back last year, but this year, is a different story!

I love the way you're showing pictures from earlier in the spring-what a great idea.
Your garden looks fabulous. I've been a bit busy-not too busy to take photos just too busy to blog.
