Surprise - the first iris of the year.
A bedraggled coneflower.
Mealy blue sage.
Mexican bush sage.
'La Marne' rose.
'Old Blush' rose.
Freshly mulched rosemary.
As for foliage, we have - a sprout of Russian sage and a heartleaf skullcap seedling.
Hiding under the santolina - tulip clusiana foliage.
I expect the grape hyacinth, freesia, anemone and ranunculus flowers will bust out any day now.
