Spring is show off time in my back garden. The leaves on the maples are coming out now, so soon there will only be enough light for the ferns, hostas and impatiens, but before the shade takes over I have lots of woodland blooming plants. Currently on stage are the jack-in-the-pulpits, false Solomon's seal, bleeding hearts and trillium (soon to exit, the Virginia Bluebells). Waiting in the wings, the lily of the valley and lilacs. If I were a more dedicated person I'd dedicate an entire sketchbook to the plants that grow in my garden. Maybe next year.
