We’re dusted with snow on this chilly April morning, bringing the spring gardening chores to a screeching halt. But the grounds are awakening! Enjoy the photo blog of our latest spring flowers.
Snowdrops (Galanthus) were the first to make an appearance on the grounds of our Amish Country boutique hotel.
The crocus were close behind, in full glory on a sunny, peaceful morning.
Pansies (‘Delta Mix’) were planted in ground and in containers for an exciting spark of color!
Colorblends’ ‘Crocreation’ mix dazzled in the sun beneath the entrance sign.
Glory of the snow (Chionodoxa lucilia) opened early last week, and mini daffodils (Narcissus) provide a cheery display by the sheep barn.
I found a praying mantis egg case in the beautyberry (Callicarpa dichotoma) while doing cutbacks in the Honeycomb border last week.
Helleborus ‘Winter Thrillers Mix’ flowering despite the snow today.
The delicate yellow-green flowers of spicebush (Lindera benzoin), an Ohio native plant! More spring blooms to come soon!
