Spring flowers

I love to plant indigenous flowers in my flower gardens. Above is some Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), started from a single plant shared with me by a fellow local gardener. It’s always the very first thing to come up in the spring.

In addition to creating extraordinary clay work, Canadian potter (and gardener) Eva Gallagher creates hypertufa planters for succulents and alpine plants. They survive the cold winters extremely well. The planter below is what is blooming in my garden at present (there are still no leaves on the trees).  The planter was purchased with the “sculptured” succulent garden already planted.
