Hazel,I just snapped those two Tulips because of the bright red,the Daffodils are bloming in the front,as well as some pretty pink Tulips.
Sorry your your Tulips are not out,but be patient,they will be soon.
GF,I consider the Perriwinkle almost a weed,it spreads like crazy,but it's good for hiding spots where nothing else grows,got one plant from a neighbor and it grew,and grew
Pretty soon you will not be able to see the soil in the flowergarded,everything survived again this year!!
I love the Magnolia too,but it's for such a short time,I also loved "Steel Magnolias"
