The Spring Garden - 2014 ed.
These are pretty little pale blue flowers that show up just after the azaleas fade. You can just see a seed pod on this one, and Facebook friend Marty says that we can start new plants from these. The Columbine is a self seeding annual...that means we'll have to put them where we want them and keep an eye on them to make sure they don't get out of hand.
Now, there is one other major treat happening at Hawksbill Cabin right now, plant wise: the hostas have fully leafed out. It's early enough that the deer have plenty to eat, so they haven't found them yet either.
It probably won't be long before the flower spikes start showing up, and when they do, we'll have the buzz of hummingbirds as well as bees working them over.
That big show starts in June, so we'll be looking forward to it.
