Today we’re celebrating spring with frequent GPOD contributor Carla Zambelli Mudry in Malvern, Pennsylvania.
Spring is finally back, and every day brings new discoveries in the garden—heirloom daffodils opening all over, shrubs starting to pop with little bits of fuzzy green. Once again, the first tree to bloom will be a volunteer native redbud (Cercis canadensis, Zones 4–9).
Enjoy the first days of spring!
This wonderfully elegant heirloom daffodil looks like it might be the variety ‘Beersheba’ (Narcissus ‘Beersheba’, Zones 4–8).
A tree peony (Paeonia hybrid, Zones 3–8) pushes out new, red-flushed growth. Soon this will transform into green leaves and enormous flowers.
Who can have enough daffodils? This one has a dark orange corolla flanked by nearly white petals.
