Wow! This was a good-to-be-alive day today if there ever was one. Nothing in my garden displeased me; the sun was shining; air was warm - perfect. The area on the hillside below my house gets full sun all day (well, all 8 hours and 42 minutes, that is). Plants growing there are always at least a few weeks ahead of the same ones in other parts of the garden. Here's what I found today: 1. Snowdrops - these are a named variety but I don't remember which. 2. Jasmine - I've shared this before but it was spectacular today. 3. Daffodils with buds - this group has been in the same rocky spot for well over 15 years . . . never divided, never fertilized. 4. Rosemary - blooms continuously year-round. 5. Helleborus 'Ivory Prince' - gets some shade. 6. Euphorbia from seed - I'm pretty sure this is new growth. I will also post these last 3 photos on the Plants with Spores forum. 7. Mosses - it takes a lot of time and patience to pick little annual weed seedlings out of it, but it's worth it. 8. Mosses 9. Pentagramma triangularis - this is a native fern that comes into its own in winter; shrivels up in summer if it gets too dry.
