Above, the one and only tulip is flowering.
The PJM Rhododendron has new growth and flower buds.
This peony doubled in size in one day!!
Ah, there you are! Endless Summer Hydrangea died right back this winter. Here she is making her way up and out! Welcome!
One Evening Scented Stock seedling (an annual) came up from last year's planting. I love this Matthiola!
The fragrance is heavenly!
The delphinium is growing by leaps and bounds. I better get out and dust it to prevent delphinium worm problems!
One clematis, east side of the fence, is showing signs of life.
Forsythia is blooming, somewhat.
Gold Barberry, Summer Wine Ninebark, cedars, and a juniper fill this corner.

Three-flowered Maple to the left, Tolleson's Weeping Juniper in the background, and Mint Julip Juniper in the front.
This just goes to show how resilient the European Mountain Ash is. This seedling was left in a pot over winter, just a six inch pot, and it is growing! Talk about tough. (zone 3 here)

Trost Dwarf Birch is leafing out, above.
Young's Twisted Weeping Birch above and hostas below.
My son's car floor matts are drying on the deck stairs above. Funny, I didn't notice them there when I took the picture, just when I transferred the photos to the computer!
Oh, well. Utilizing every space is practical, if not aesthetically pleasing.
Shadows in the garden.
Bridal Wreath Spirea, aka Renaissance Spirea, above and below. These photos were taken Mother's Day.

My Mother's Day roses from my husband. XOXO
Taken yesterday, the same spirea (Bridal Wreath) now blooming her heart out!
The tulip has faded from butter yellow to white but is still very pretty.
