Here are a few of the things poking up in my yard today.
These Ligularia have edges so crisp that it looks like someone cut them with a pinking shears.
These tightly bunched, shiny leaves belong to the kirengeshoma palmata, sometimes called Yellow Wax Bells. They like partial shade and get astonishingly large(shrub-sized) for something that starts from the ground up every year.
Shooting Stars are pointed rather that jagged, but I couldn’t resist adding them because they are so pretty. Really, life is too short not to have beauties like these in it. If you have a garden, make room for Shooting Stars. They even come in pink.
