  1. Simply gorgeous! Your April joys will be happening for us considerably later in the season but thanks for the reminder of what's to come! We're still surrounded by blossoming trees, late daffodils, tulips and the like while everything is putting on it's most vibrant shades of spring green.

  3. Your Hemerocallis are ahead of mine, there are buds but I think it will be a week or two before they flower. I especially like the Carpenteria californica, not a plant I know, it looks beautiful.

    1. I planted that Carpenteria about 2.5 years ago. This is the first time it has bloomed and I'm thrilled, Christina.

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog, Aga! The blueberries seem to be ripening very early this year - I've already eaten some, trying to beat out the squirrels that like to steal them when I'm not looking.

  5. I do love me a Graptoveria 'Fred Ives', yours look especially fetching. The foliage tips seem more pointed, beautiful!

    1. You're right about the pointy leaves of this Graptoveria - it also has a deeper color than my others. Although it was labeled 'Fred Ives,' I wonder if it's something else.

  6. So many lovely plants in bloom! And another look at your Digiplexis which intrigues me. To me it is just amazing that these are the flowers of April. I can't imagine what will be going on in your garden in June and July as you have all these lovely things out now.
