I have England and Spring on my mind today.
Allium ‘Purple Sensation’ pokes its head up through the hostas.
We have several Japanese Maples scattered throughout the garden but my favorite has to be Acer palmatum ‘Watnong’ because of the many beautiful color changes it goes through during the course of the season.
The Robinson crabapples are strutting their stuff at the east entrance to the garden. The line of four crabapples separate the entry path and the wildflower meadow to the left.
With its beautiful purple flowers and hairy flower stems, Pulsatilla vulgaris is one of my favorite springtime flowers. Equally attractive are the plume-like seed heads that follow the flower.
I'm not sure which Daffodil this is as it came with the farm. However, whichever variety it is, it's a beautiful one with its delicate, almost pure white, petals.
