Clematis 'Macropetala Markham's Pink's' blooms look papery and fragile.
This pink tree peony, unknown variety, has opened its first bloom.
Kim caught me putting my nose into it. But who can resist? They're not just for viewing, they're for the scent also. And peonies smell fantastic.
Speaking of enjoying the smell of spring, Felix does so in the front yard with the phlox.
He looks sweet, doesn't he?
But I wonder why I bothered planting anything in this planter box out front, which has turned into a "cat box".
The phlox out front are still hanging in there. And now with the Antoinette tulips in bloom, it's looking lovely out there.
Out back again, Felix takes a cat nap among the soon to be blooming Peachleaf Bellflowers.
An allium starting to push open.
And Scarface has met the hens. He gets protective of his tennis balls, but otherwise it's been uneventful. I think it helped that he has been exposed to them through the fence for so long and has come to accept them as part of our "pack".
Another lovely miniature tulip out back.
And a picture by Kim, of Scarface reflected in a wine glass.
And waiting patiently, or not, for someone to throw his tennis ball.
