Many other things are blooming right now, or I should say in mid bloom. My redbuds and spicebush are flowering however the buds seemed to have stopped at the midway point. Perhaps this is due to the cool weather and even cooler nights. I am not sure if they will open entirely at this point but here they are for you to see.
Both these plants are new to the garden as of last summer. The spicebush in particular has some growing to do but it does live up to it's name with a spicy scent from the flowers.
Also pushing their way out of the ground is the Solomon's Seal. They get better every year. I have the European variegated one as well and it is striking at this time with it's red tinged stems. Here is the native one:
Also in bloom right now is the serviceberry. I will keep that for next time.
