Second Look-4-28

I plan to take "A Second Look"  around my yard every week to see what perennials and shrubs are blooming. Here's what I found this week.

Dead nettle (Lamium m. Aureum) in my shade bed. The dark green leaves in the upper left corner are wintergreen or tea-berry. I got this because it reminded me of a favorite chewing gum from my childhood.

Pieris japoinica
The only tulip left that the deer haven't eaten.

White dogwood.

Pink dogwood--my favorite of all the trees that bloom in Spring.

The seventh variety of daffodil that we have found. The two small blooms come from the same stem.
