A Bit of Tender Spring Green

So I arrived in Baltimore last night and right now Judy and I are staying with friends in the small town of Dayton, Maryland. Our plan for the day was to see the Azaleas at the National Arboretum. Problem is, it’s raining.

While we’re waiting for the rain to stop, here are some tender green leaves from the last weekend in our garden.


Red Elderberry (Sambucus racemosa).


Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica). Don’t the leaves look like they should be delicious in a salad? Don’t try it, though, they’re not edible.


Wild Ginger (Asarum canadensis). Smells like ginger, but sadly not the real thing.


New leaves of our ‘Donald Wyman’ Crabapple.

I’m linking (a bit late) to Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Day, sponsored by Christina of My Hesperides Garden. Pay her a visit for a peek at more beautiful spring foliage.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Virginia Bluebells before, what very pretty flowers. As for the inedible leaves looking good enough for a salad, that’s exactly what I thought about a gerbera I was recently given: another plant with inedible leaves, but it did look very salady!
