|'Mardi Gras Double'|
I'm concerned about the floppiness at Mardi Gras' base. It seems to be afflicted by some kind of mold, fungus or rot, which I haven't seen on any of my other Hellebores.
Primroses are thriving, as usual.

Last fall I divided and potted up some Pulmonaria, leaving one piece in the ground. Now the potted ones are blooming and the one in the ground is not.

I'm very happy to see so many flowers on my Indian Plum/Oemleria cerasiformis. I moved it in January to make it part of the screen/backdrop against the back fence. It hasn't missed a beat, and in fact is flowering even more profusely than ever, leaving me hopeful of seeing lots of fruit this fall. Not that I would ever eat it, because reportedly, it is more pit than pulp, and the size of a cherry. But the birds and other wildlife might, which is one of the reasons why this native small tree was planted.

And in the not quite flowering yet department:
