Poppy somniferum

 

It's always exciting when the first poppies of the season bloom.  Today I woke up to this beauty.

Kelly's Path

I dedicated this part of my garden to my friend Kelly a few years ago.The blindingly bright Golden Oregano, I know, would bring a smile to her face, if she were here. I think of her every time  I walk down this path.

The Iris look particularly dashing in front of the Texas Gold Columbine Aquilegia chrysantha ‘Hinckleyana,' this year.

Clematis 'Ramona'

The first Clematis to bloom in my garden each spring is Clematis 'Ramona.'
It happens to be my favorite Clematis too!

Tulipa clusiana var. Tubergens Gem

The little Tulips blooming amongst the Sedum and Golden Oregano is a species Tulip.  I love how the red pops with the green and gold.

The Kerria japonica, Golden Groundsel (Packera aurea) and Creeping Speedwell (Veronica umbrosa 'Georgia Blue') are in full bloom.  This time, I can take credit for the trio. I intentionally planted them together because, yellow and blue in the garden is well as we say in Texas "dang purty!"  I added four of the Yucca Color Guard (Yucca filamentosa) this year to "gild the groundsel."
