flower update

 The first garden blooms open in the warm little microclimate created by a rock wall!
 In the cutting beds the plants are farther behind, but this 'Dick Wilden' narcissus is budding up nicely.
  
Allium multibulbosum emerging looks like tillandsia of the dirt.
 Low tunnel of stock and snapdragons enjoying the cool temps. 
Muscari!
 I've been checking the tulip beds at least three times each day to look for any buds and as a bonus, I get to spend time staring at the awesome leaves of 'Tsar Peter' greigii tulips.  I decided to do a small planting of these for their foliage, and I'm psyched to get to watch them develop!
 
Fritillaria meleagris unfurling.  Some of these spring-flowering plants are among my favorites of the whole year, so I'm feeling really excited about soaking it all in these next few weeks!
