GBBD: March 2012
A stroll through the woodland garden reveals all the trees bursting with life. The Japanese Maples are leafing out;
as are the black lace Elderberry
Many of the native azaleas are ready to pop.
Other notable blooms in the woodland garden are trillium and hellebore.
with Heuchera providing more lively color along the woodland paths.
I was very excited when I saw this zebra swallowtail enjoying the fresh soil that fills the raised beds. I spotted the first of these butterflies in my garden in April last year (see post here) and it too had damaged wings. I never saw it again after the one sighting. I wonder if I will see this beauty again.
Rosemary is stunning at this time of year. I love the dainty blue blossoms.
