What spring in Zone 4 looks like.

"My name is Carol Jean Kadonsky and I garden in central Wisconsin (zone 4) and I shared photos back in 2013.  I know many gardeners have spring blooms already but in my yard the bulbs are just poking out of the ground.  So I'm sharing some photos from last years gardens and projects.  Last July 10 & 11 my garden was part of the Master Gardeners "Garden Walk."  The weather was beautiful and we had a great turn out.  Looking back, it's all a bit of a blur but a wonderful experience."

In preparation for the garden walk I finally painted my metal dining patio set purple; it now matches my purple wooden chair planter.

That is Mme Julia Correvon clematis growing on my copper tubing trellis against the pine tree. With raspberry wine monarda/bee balm growing next to it.

This is a new dahlia and I do not know the name because it does not match the picture on the packaging but I like it better than what it was supposed to look like.
