(Please click on the photographs to see them larger.)

At times the camera sees what the eye doesn't pick up.
I didn't notice that little green fellow who was sitting
on the anemone petal when I took the picture.

Look at the 'Queen's pretty face.
New to my garden is this Helleborus Double Queen.
I think she looks like 'Phoebe'.

This bud looks like it could be the star of
Little Shop of Horrors.
"Feed me, Seymore, feed me!"

Spring is blooming.
Let the plant sales begin!
Here is just a sampling of the many:
Florabundance is this weekend. One of my favorites.
Master Gardener Plant Sale is next weekend.
Where the tomato plants fly off the shelves early and quickly.
I went to the Pre-sale party last year and it was fabulous.
No huge crowds, first picks on great plants, and
excellent food and beverages.
Lake Wilderness Arboretum Plant Sale is held on
May 7th, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
If you want native, unusual, inexpensive plants,
this has been a great one to attend.

I hope spring brings good things to you and your garden!
And now I'll be bringing something good
to feed Audrey II.



  1. Hi Aerie-el! Nice to see you posting again! Yes, I saw that green bug. I agree, we would miss so many things without a camera. The Queen is pretty, and the bud just needs two eyes to become a dinosaur...

  2. Don't put your hand too close to that hellebore, just in case... great blooms, and welcome back to real, true, honest to goodness SPRING!

    Oh, the plant sales... always a budget-buster for me, especially Florabundance!!

  3. Hi Aerie-el. Where you been girl LOL! What a pretty anemone. How many times are we so intent on getting a pictures framed up right that we miss those little things until we upload the pictures. I have done it quite often. It is always a good surprise.
    Great picture.

  4. Very pretty new Hellebore!
    I had plant sale on my calender for this weekend, but couldn't remember which one it was, now I know :) I hope to make it to at least one of them this year.

  5. Hi Aerie-el! I am a great fan of your flower pictures. I think you took the right choice.The vulcano in island stopped my visit in USA in april, I start again in september to visit the indian summer.Good luck for you...

  6. I love your hellebores! I found a few today that I don't have, and found a spot for them that is not in the areas the others are in. I bought a bunch of other plants, too.

    I don't remember seeing an anemone with blue on it like yours. It's very pretty.

    I haven't made it to all the plant sales I wanted to, but found some nice plants at the ones I did make it to.


I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
