Looking forward to spring blooms

Todays photos are from Kathryn (Kit) Jensen.

I garden in a small suburban yard in Zone 6a in northeastern Ohio (South Euclid). During the pandemic it was a focus and is always a wonderful passion. At the time, I added many more plants, bulbs, and rock edging. These are 2022 photos of spring bulbs.

    You have such a pretty garden with the graceful curved borders!
    Your fritillaries (Fritillaria meleagris) is amazing!
    I've never seen a good photo of these until now- showing the delicate stems that support the beautiful checkered blooms!
