I was so happy to see the Bleeding Heart plant. Somehow I managed to kill one at my old house and I'm looking forward to having one in the garden again. In all fairness to myself I think the one that didn't survive was in really damp clay soil and it just rotted.
Here's the one that we planted in the shade garden last year. You can see the little pink flower buds starting to take shape.
Another favorite of mine is this variegated Jacob's Ladder.
In the front yard the rose bushes already have leaves and perennials are popping up everywhere.
In the vegetable garden the peas are continuing to grow...
....and the radish seeds have sprouted.
We are expecting a rainy weekend so not much gardening will be happening. Tonight I'm starting some Kermit Eggplant seeds that I just got in the mail. These were a request from my mother for me to grow. She has a recipe in mind for them.
