After appreciating my bare garden's structural bones--if one can speak of circles and curves as "bones"--for the past several weeks, a few minor entertainments are starting. Today, I spied this Epimedium x warleyense (cultivar name lost) as the sun progressed to the front side of the house. The close-up above shows its intense oranges and yellows, the tiny hairs on its stems.
This colony is one of two along the front entrance walk where other plants are just beginning to stir.
Of course, you have to view these flowers with your face two inches above the pathway. That's not a problem now that I've started yoga lessons!
