|A drift of snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis)|
With temperatures hitting the mid and upper teens (Celsius) this week in Toronto, it seems like bulbs and buds (makes for a nice landscaping company name) are in overdrive to open. We had so little snow this winter that it doesn't feel like we even had one. Not a typical Toronto winter but no complaints here!
Spring ephemerals are out and about and since I promised you last post that I would show some snowdrop pictures, well, here they are.
|Let the unfurling of the hellebores begin!|
|Clumps of barrenwort (Epimedium grandiflorum) relatively|
unscathed from winter damage
Fun/silly fact: This genus is also called "horny goat weed" or "rowdy lamb herb."
Use this information as you will...
