Vancouver's Spring 2011

Here are some photos of our Spring. The flowers are nice on a clear day but rain is so often and wind is strong. Right now cherry blossom is starting and the trees are pink. I planted the new kind of Tulip with the shocking colour and riffle edges. I also have new Muguet (lily of the valley). Akebia plants are all in full bloom with wisteria and bluebells coming soon. Paulownia will be late this year and I will be able to see it flower when I am back from my trip. But maybe I am going to missed my wisteria, since I think it will flower in late May. Some rarer plants I have in pot this year include: Sinofranchetia chinensis, Aristolochia gibertii, Illigera celebrica, Mucuna sempervirens, Aristolochia maxima, Rivea corymbosa, and Marah oreganus coming out from the ground very strong.
Happy Spring!
