No Shows / First-timers

Well, not one hyacinth has seen fit to bloom. Planted some in apricot, lemon yellow and blue (although not together). Nor has the daffodil 'Acropolis' so far. There's some greenery, but no bulbs. The two corydalis died back over winter, as expected, but I've seen no sign of either of them this year.

On the upside, the lupins are finally going to bloom and they're not messing around. The big one has at least 6 bloom stalks and there seem to be more every day. Also bought some white daylilys, they appear to be coming along nicely, as are some lighter orange ones from a friend named Eunice. Eunice is an exceptional gardener and everything I get from her does well, often straightaway, sometimes after a year or two. Luckily for me, she's needed to do some serious dividing in the last few years and I've picked up loads of hostas, plus daylilys, siberian iris and I don't remember everything else.
