Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Fertilizer Friday -- Hepatica, Anemone and Others

It's Friday again already! Time to flaunt my flowers for Fertilizer Friday, a blogging meme hosted by Tootsie at Tootsie Time.

It's mostly still spring ephemerals. Although there are a few new plants, recently bought, that are flowering.

Hepatica nobilis

Anemone nemorosa

Trillium ovatum

Claytonia sibirica

Corydalis flexuosa 'Purple leaf'

Erythronium tuolumnense 'Pagoda'

Erythronium oregonum

Double Hellebore

My little patch of Siberian Squill

Cycalmen coum (this has been blooming since I bought it at the NWFGS)

Mukdenia rossii 'Crimson Fans'

There was a time not that long ago, when I said I didn't like Euphorbias. Well, I like this one, and bought a few to plant beside the stream. The flowers are kinda skunky-smelling when you get close, but they're on the far side of the stream, so I don't have to smell them.

In fact, I bought a few, and I've planted them with a bunch of peach-colored Heucheras and primroses, and ornamental grasses.

I used to say I didn't like peach, salmon pink or orange in the garden too.

Even old ladies can change their minds.
