I love living in an area that has old trees, but it means we have less full sun, especially in the back. The back beds are always slow getting going.

The large variegated wiegelia is beginning to leaf at last. For a while I thought it didn’t survive but it’s looking healthy enough now. The dwarf wiegelia began to get leaves about a week ago. In the far back, what we affectionately call “the warning track”, the white flowering crab is almost fully leafed, the birch about halfway, and the red crab just starting.

The tulips in the upper beds are at my favorite stage: just past buds. Immediately to their left are the dwarf wiegelia, and in the lower right the sedum is beginning to fill in.
