As you can see, my white tulip (that I discussed in a blog entry this past Tuesday), has been joined by a friend, clothed in purple. I did not guess the color properly from looking at their tips (as you my recall from that post which you may click here to read if you'd like to refresh your memory or just to take a second look at the tulip's tips before they opened), but I am overjoyed by its magnificent presence.
To its immediate right are the burgundy leaves of my Avellana corylus (Contorted Hazel Nut), a plant I have written about in the past which you can reread by clicking here as well here. The twisting and turning of its branches are fun to look at during the winter months when they are bare, but the lovely textured burgundy leaves are always a miracle to behold as spring commences, and a smidgen of this can be seen in the photograph posted below:
Funny how folks shed their layers of clothes in the spring and summer months — the exact time that my plants, herbs, trees, and shrubs get dressed. In any event, The Avellana corylus will be featured in my soon to be released You Tube movie that I mentioned in yesterday's blog entry. My crew and I have had some technical difficulties, so the release has been delayed, however, we won't have nearly the delays of Broadway's, Spider Man Turn off the Dark. Please stay tuned for release of my movie, or leave me a comment with your contact information and I will contact you with the details on when and where to view it.
Meanwhile, there seems to be no delays with my plants and shrubs celebrating spring. Even the Continus Coggygria (Smokey Bush), also known as Grace, is bursting with buds (as indicated in the photograph posted below),
Finally, in terms of today's post (but not my garden where there is much more growth than this blog entry can hold), my H.F. Young Clematis, is once again bursting with buds as you can see in a photograph posted below.
