Above Prunus subhirtella "Autumnalis Rosea", I think - very early blooms.
Above and below, my friends the bloodroots! I was very surprized to see a little plaque declaring this narrow patch right on East Houston a bona fide offshoot and outpost of the BBG! And it was at the BBG that I saw bloodroot last April, in the Native Garden, for the first time. They are adorable, anemone-like flowers with leaves that curl around their buds and stems like protective cloaks.
Below, though I have used Mahonia (Oregon grape) in garden designs before, and spoken of its sweet scent, that scent-knowledge was theoretical and book-gleaned. I put my nose - along with many bees' noses - into this heavy bunch of flowers yesterday and inhaled the most glorious perfume. I will plant more. Louise, of thisismypatch, writes of it, too.
