Plants continue to grow (and some to bloom) as our garden unfolds for 2021. And Mrs. F.G. continues to prepare the garden for all the things she's going to plant over the coming weeks. If we just got some more actually warm weather I could get out and enjoy it more.

Our garden helper took off the sod here, and then dug it up a week later, Mrs. F.G. then spread both fertilizer and manure, mixed it in, and spread decaying leaves on top. I think it's ready for planting.
Mrs.F.G. is quietly expanding the garden in three small patches, the largest right outside the window. It's under those leaves.
The White Bleeding Heart is about to bloom too.
And this is a really unusual plant to me, one that I think of as the stinky flower! It's a Fritillaria standing 2-3 feet tall, with a ring of orange blossoms hanging down. I have a great picture of it snow-covered at our last place a few years back. And it really is stinky! There are numerous different species, and the colours range from white through yellow and orange to red to dark purple. It's a neat flower!
