Ohhh, my favorites, Primulas and Epimediums!! Totally charming!

We took a walk at our place in Pennsy over the weekend. Trees are just greening out. Coltsfoot is about done and the Troutlilies were coming up together with Tiarellas, Trilliums, Podophyllums, some Anemones, Ferns were just unfurling, Starflowers and False Cucumber. The green carpet on the forest floor consists of wild Lily of the Valley/Maianthemum) Visiting our Cyp acaule stands, many were showing buds.
The Narcissus are surely a leftover from a house long forgotten.
The Sunnies are very tame, were were amazed to see already this year's crop of babies trying to join the fray as we fed them soft bread.
I love this time of year!

The beautiful hayfield next door has been sold. We assume they will build-hopefully not too many homes!! Angry We decided to ask our tree guy to put in trees. So today we added some baby hemlocks along the border. We have well established pines and spruces and firs in between these areas. The good news is that because we now will have a windbreak, I also put in a few Japanese maples (Bloodgood I assume). Hope wha is reading this!

Perhaps you get lucky. We have now a new neighbor in Pennsy, he is really cleaning up and he took down the old fence - it will stay cow pasture, but he is installing an electric fence. But, have to see how it goes, his property has beautiful spots which we have always visited throughout the Summer.
Here is the nice bonfire we were all watching. It was a regular party!

About the Painted Trillium, they are very rare at out our place too, I found in all these years only 3 plants in bloom. And the white one is a single plant which comes back year after year in the same spot.

Beautiful photos everyone! Especially love the little double anemone and the painted trillium! Gorgeous!

I took a few more photos of Monsella today now that the clump is fully open. I also forgot to mention she is fragrant! Lovey dubby
