Early April Garden

We are moving into mid-spring and here are some sights of the flowers currently in bloom. I love how the Hot Lips salvia is moving from a solid, brilliant red bloom to the customary bi-color flowers. The yellow tulip pictured arrived about late last week and is a bright spot in an otherwise green flower bed (B4). Finally, after the windy storm last Thursday, I spotted the first Dutch irises in bloom among the narcissi in B3.
