It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Today I thought I'd take you for a walk around my yard.
 This is a new Anemone I got last year.  I'm really not sure what it is because the tag was wrong.  I didn't have any like this that bloom in spring so what ever it is, I'm happy to have it.
 This Anemone is in a small shade area in the back of my house.
 This shade garden is doing well.  It's in the far back corner of my lot. If you click the picture to enlarge it, you can see the white Trillium is turning pink now.  To the left front, by the rock is creeping Foam Flower blooming.
 In the left back corner you can see the Jack Frost Brunera.  If you look close you can see the tiny blue blooms that resemble forget-me-knots.
 I love the way this Soft Needle Fern unfurls! 
 In the opposite back corner of the yard, the Clematis that climbs the ladder to the shed roof is beginning to bloom.  It is just full of blooms this year.
 This bed is on the other side of the shed and next to my neighbors garage.  There are a few Iris blooming but they are very small this year.  It's funny how differently the plants respond to unseasonal weather.  Before long the rusty wheelbarrow will be buried under perennial Sweet Peas.
 The large side garden is filling up.  Right now, there are just volunteer blue forget-me-knots and white wood hyacinths
 This Spurge is in the front garden along the walkway. It stayed green all winter and is full of blooms.
 I love the bright green blooms with the red centers!
Coming to the front door you can see this beautiful Azalea bush and smell the Lilies-of-the-Valley that grow under the bush.  They are not really open yet but that doesn't stop them from sharing their lovely scent.
That's what is going on in my yard this week.  What's going on in yours?  Add your name and permalink to Mr Linky to share your garden with us.  Please, remember to post this link on your blog.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

Hi Jean, Love your euphorbia, azaleas, and brunnera! The anemones are very nice too. What a very nice garden you have, Jean. I enjoyed my visit today.

Looking good Ms. Jean. That Jack Frost is the only kind of frost I like. I too love the euphorbia....I only had two iris, so sad.

Hi Jean,

Thank you for the spring garden tour! Your Brunnera 'Jack Frost' is lovely. I will be linking up later today with a picture of mine. I love the look of your Azalea with the Lily-of-the-Valley - so pretty.

Coming along Jean. Love the Jack Frost. I'm not familiar with Spurge but is so pretty. Can't wait to see the wheelbarrow all abloom.
