Wow, you have quite a bit blooming already! So far, I have 3 small clumps of jonquils and a little patch of pansies that over-wintered under the oak leaves.

What's the red flower in the fence garden? Almost looks like a columbine, but I've never seen one that color.

Winston is looking mighty fine, I must say!

Yes it is...its one of my new plants this year. So far it looks good. I dont know much about it but it looks nice in the garden.

I can look up what it says on the tag to see if it needs any special attention or planting details if you like?

Cindy

I will post some more pics tonight! My yellow Tree Peony is blooming this morning OMG it looks beautiful!

That would be great! I got mine as a gift, so I didn't have any info about it. It does look nice...until it's brown and crispy, lol! Mine is a bit of an eyesore right now.

Would love to see more pics when you have them!

Very pretty flowers, and doggy
I like the dark mulch, I think it makes the plants stand out more, not a big fan of the orangey stuff

Looks like you have some nice Lilies poking their noses up behind the Columbine in the pot. What color are the Lilies?

Well I see some Aztec Lillies popping out in the second picture Love Aztec's

I used black mulch last year and it looks so nice in the garden. From a distance, the gardens look like their freshly watered.

Winston looks so handsome and innocent in the last picture It's like he's saying, "What ME ruin the flowers--NOT!"

What the heck is an Aztec lily? I thought perhaps those poking up were what's called LA Hybrid or Longiforum x Asiatic Lily.
