You have a ton of stuff blooming! How fun! My coreopsis, coral bells, hybrid columbines, and Niobe clematis aren't blooming yet. Bet your gardens look great!

Thanks. There is a lot blooming, but I'm not sure it's all displayed as well as it could be. My garden is a hodge-podge. Wish that before I started planting, I had a bobcat come in and shape everything. Instead, one bed led to another, and now I've got to try to give it structure and shape without bulldozing all the plants out of the way.

The clematis -- both of them -- are too close together, and have outgrown every trellis I've put there. I wish I had built an 8 foot tall arched entrance, and put one on each side. Oh well, the plants are there even if the grand entrance isn't.

The coreopsis -- I got the early bloom without really planning for it. It's in a raised bed that is supposed to be for asparagus and greens. Well, the asparagus never took off like I had hoped, and last fall I used the other half for an emergency holding bed for some divisions and transplants, one of which was the coreopsis.
