Already Spring

We've had some really pleasant weather over the past couple weeks and our yard is already waking up. We had a squirrel problem over the winter (as in he was digging up bulbs for food), so I expected there to be no bulbs left. I'm pleased to see some survived.
Mammoth Yellow Crocus from Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, Woodburn, OR.
We only planted one bulb in each spot, they divided over the winter.
These are hellebores of unknown variety from our neighbor, donaleen. I think this is their second year.
The flowering maple in the hidden garden survived the winter and is putting on new growth.
Our flowering currant in the front yard rain garden is about to explode into flowers.
Really looking forward to that.

I'm not sure what this shrub is at the back fence. Jeff had to prune it way back so we could paint the shed last summer. The flowers are starting to come in. (My latest guess is Flowering Quince.)

  1. Yes, the flowers seem confused. We have daffs up in our neighborhood already. The pop of color is wonderful at this time of year, but it makes me wonder if we'll have any color come springtime? Enjoy your blooms!
