Pam, at Digging, hosts Foliage Followup the 16th of the month, the day after Carol's GBBD. I took way too many foliage photos, and exported as a group, all the ones I didn't delete. Now, I'm thinking my plan is to just pick every other one or so, and put them in the post, and see how it turns out. This time of year all the foliage looks good to me, from the fuzzy lamb's ears, the frilly columbines, the colorful coral bells, to the spiky iris. (My GBBD/Fertilizer Friday post is the one previous to this one.)
I like the looks of hellebore leaves. I've noticed the different varieties have varying shapes and sizes of leaves. Oh, there's some not so pretty tulip foliage to the right, too.
I have several more coral bells that didn't make this post. I've had these identified before, but don't remember their names. Oh, and I see the spotted foliage of pulmonaria in this photo.
I like the crinkle and color of lady's mantle leaves.
The knautia foliage is prettier in the spring than later in the season, when it can get a bit floppy.
The sedums have cool shaped foliage.
I have been loving this beauty the last couple weeks, but can't remember what it is. It's about to bloom, too. Do you know what it is? Is it a euphorbia of some kind?
A variety of clematises are coming up nicely, and are visibly taller each day.
This big blue flowered clematis will be blooming soon.
Every year, when the peonies first peak through the soil, I say I'm going to get peony cages on them, but a few days later, they look like this, and are too big to cage. They aren't as thick this year, so if I get to them tomorrow, it may not be too late.
The foliage of chives is always a welcome sight to me in spring.
Have a wonderful spring weekend! I hope those in the north are experiencing a warm up.
