Sunny Sunday...after the Rain.

 It is still too cold for the blooms to all be open. The plants are very healthy and last night's rain might just make things be better. 

I dug up the rhubarb plant on the right and gave it away. You can see I didn't get all of the roots removed as it is growing back. I need to remove some of the leaves on the right plant as I think there are lilies under there trying to poke through. I plant my old Easter lilies in the bed and they do grow and bloom the next year. 

One of my new iris plants is trying to put out a bloom but I think it will fail. The plants come from Oregon and the warmer weather that we had did encourage some growth. 

The new, old trellis is going to have clematis vine spreading all over it.  I was surprised from the photo that it has grown up above the original metal trellis. I have mulch to spread around it yet and last nights rain should help it to grow more.

A panting of a Rembrandt tulip is on display now as it is the tulip season. I took it off the wall and brought it upstairs to enjoy. All but two white tulips is all that I have left out in the garden. Too windy, too cold, too hot, and now the rain probably cleared them all away. 

Thank you for stopping by today.

Fun to see your plants and the tulip painting is gorgeous. I hope the clematis does well.

Love that painting. And yes, I love the smell of Lily of the Valley, too.
