Nice to be back home

      Isn't it nice to come back home after a few days long trip in May and notice all the changes in the garden? Just in 5 days garden has changed remarkably. Most of the tulips were still in bud when I left but now many are flowering. My first time attempt to plant tulips in color combinations seems to work well. Here are couple of examples.

Tulipa fosteriana 'Orange Emperor' and Single Early Tulip 'Yokohama'

Fringed Tulip 'Crystal Beauty' and Darwin Hybrid Tulip 'Golden Apeldoorn'

Darwin Hybrid Tulip 'Van Eijk'

Kaufmanniana Tulip 'Giuseppe Verdi'

     Perennials are growing very fast, they look different every day. Foliage is freshly green and soft on touch.

Aruncus aethusifolius

Dicentra spectabilis

Adiantum pedatum

     When I left 5 days ago there was not a single flower open on rhododendrons. Today 'Cunningham's White', the earliest of my rhods, is in full bloom. I especially like the combination of pink flower buds and white flowers.
