What do you see on your garden walk, 2016?

The dactylorhizas are beginning to bloom.  It's fascinating to see the variations.  All are hybrids that started from D. fuchsii, maculata, and majalis.

Cypripedium parviflorum flowered for the first time.  It is "caged" to keep it away from rabbits and squirrels -- too precious!

Bulbous plants range from large to small.  A sample:  Lilium x dalhansonii, Nomocharis aperta, Allium acuminatum.

Wonderful stuff, Claire.  I didn't realize there were any Cypripediums with such a large leaf subtending the flower!  Interesting, but quite a distraction for the flower itself.  I just love all the twists in the sepals!

Nice, Harold.  I have to keep copper mesh around mine to keep the slugs away.  It's slug candy to them.
