I almost overlooked it. It's tucked in at the base of the south face of a large boulder in the Rock Garden. A perfect location for solar heating to get a head start on his little crocusey friends.
Ah, but look. There are some crocusey friends to his left, two of them.
I'm thinking Crocus tommasinanus.
Here's the Yucca again which I photographed a few weeks ago. I like how the leaves capture the light.
The Witchhazels I also photographed a month ago are now fading, but still colorful.
Just starting to come into their own are the heaths in the Rock Garden. I look forward to watching them progress over the new few months.
