    Pretty Verbena.  I bought some over the weekend but haven’t gotten around to planting it yet.

    Charlene said she wasn’t familiar with Nine Bark so I promised her a picture of it in bloom .   This is its 1st year for blooming.

    The Honeysuckle in the backyard is blooming.

    And the Hummingbirds love it.

    Steve…lovely verbena and I believe I see a lisianthus growing in the back of the pot?

    Gayle….now I do remember the Nine bark…Donna posted it before and it is very pretty!

    Mary…what a beautiful honeysuckle vine….I bet it smells so good.

    Snowwolf….from the pictures you’ve been posting, you must have a lovely yard and I am amazed how far you are ahead of us here.  I guess Spring came earlier in your area.  Have you gotten any rain this Spring?

    Butterfly 22….you have to open an online account with Picasa.  It sounds like you have the app on your phone for the pics, but then you transfer the pic to your onine albums to share them here.  It is called “quick upload” if you see any option like that

    Tulips here yet

    Steve nice color verbena plant looks so healthy

    Gayle Nice color ninebark which one is it Diabolo, I have one called Coppertina that the leaves look two tone

    Mary Nice honeysuckle vines and I can smell them already so sweet and light

    Charlene  You have a very nice assortments of tulips so many different colors.   My gardens are a mess for sure but thanks for the nice compliment, I have so much work to do in them and no time I am surprised though how much is coming back and some things are just breaking ground now and other things are way ahead of schedule it is going to be a weird year again.   Those 4 days of 80-88 degrees really made things pop.   Rain what is that I will have to start watering soon I dig and it is so dry.

    Here is a pictures of pulsatilla papageno a double flowering type and I picked this one out of the batch a few years ago because it had a huge double flower and a nice shade of pink

    Gayle… That is a pretty plant and flower. Its got a some nice dark colored foliage as well.

    Marnee… No wonder your hummers love that honeysuckle with all those blooms. We get a wild variety of honeysuckle here and the hummers also love it and I love the fragrance of it as well.

    Charlene… Your tulips are so pretty. They remind me of peppermint candy………Yes theres lisianthus in that pot. In fact theres 3 plants in there but the other two are shorter than the verbena. Now if I just remembered what color or colors they are lol.

    Snowwolf… Thats a really pretty flower even if I don’t have any idea how to say its name lol. It does have nice fern like foliage too.

    Thanks everyone for todays nice pictures and comments.
