A FEW WEEKENDS AGO my friend Vickie and I went to Dancing Oaks Nursery. We have to make at least one trip per gardening season because of the enchanting gardens and the delectable plant inventory. And, it's only a pleasant, twenty or so minute drive from my house! I've detailed and photographed previous trips here and here.
This time I just took random photos of the gardens in early April.
|Ornamental Rhubarb making its spring debut|
|Probably the most health stand of Pulsatilla I've ever seen|
|Ditto for the Heucherella here.|
|With the deep red of the Acer foliage, what's not to love?|
|It was drizzling when I took this photo of the upper water feature.|
|Even the weeds were pretty. You gotta love this Henbit.|
|Luscious little bells|
|This Pulmonaria was exquisite.|
I think it's 'Raspberry Splash'
|Don't you love these ingenious posts for insulators?|
|I'm always jealous of Fred and Leonard's many healthy Daphne plants.|
This one is D. 'Lawrence Crocker'. So fragrant.
|Check out this Veratrum!|
|It made me think of Loree of Danger Garden and her recent post about this scrumptious plant.|
|Muscari are allowed to naturalize|
|Very cool garden art|
|Euphorbia robbinae and variegated Lunaria|
|Of course, outstanding hellebores!|
|I couldn't resist capturing these bright red Semps.|
Aren't they cool?
