While spring pretended to be summer for a few weeks, topiaries wait patiently to go outside for the summer and winter bulbs continue to impress.  The La Paz amaryllis sent up an impressive third stalk towering nearly three feet tall to look at the action outside.

Outside, David Autin roses were fooled into budding.  They didn't hear the forecast for temps in the teens and twenties tonight.

Hollyhocks not willing to wait for raking to be done.

Bergenia (Pig Squeak) blooms are about three to four weeks early.

And peonies make an early appearance to greet the crocus.

At this rate my garden might be done by June.

Linking to Jane's Flowers in the House party today.  Stop in and smell the lilacs.
