Sometimes they come back

I’ve been reading Feed and it is almost Easter, thus I have resurrection on my mind. I figured now is as good a time as any to go through the list and see what made it through the winter.

Let us begin in the backyard. So far, I have confirmed sightings of:

Gaura siskiyou pink (lindheimeri)

pink fountain lindheimeri walgaupf

baptisia australis (false blue indigo)

geranium cantabrigiense biokovo

penstemon ‘prairie twilight’ / beard tongue

peony, Lactiflora ‘pillow talk’

hardy hydrangea (little lime) (hydrangea paniculata ‘jane”)

chrysanthemum

I have not yet seen the Ballerina Red Armeria (Armeria pseudarmeria ‘ballerina red’), the Bees Ruby Armeria (arenaria ‘bees’ ruby) or the Cotton Tail Thrift. I really like them so I hope they spout soon.

And now for the front yard. Here it is from the left and the right.

I almost thought the Toad Lillies (Sinonome and Samurai) we’re weeds.

Both azaleas are hanging on but I’m not sure for how much longer.

Sedum, Autumn Joy

rhododendron catawbiense

I don’t think the guara lindheimeri siskiyou pink out in front made it.

On the other side of the front steps, we have:

euphorbia (amygdaloides var. robbiae)

20120404-162525.jpg
columbine red (aquilegia)

And two of these things my neighbor gave me. Nandina — thanks, Maggie!

A few of the columbine plants and the speedwell didn’t make it.
