Today is a Sunapee day, bright blue sky and a brisk breeze. Here is the Easter table, set with blue and white mertensia and bleeding heart,
and here is the birthday cake for LMP, which sneaks in here because of the violets on top.
Everything looks beautiful on a day like this: the newly painted walkway garden bright with narcissus from Van Bourgondien,
the daffodils from Brodie Castle smuggled in the luggage and safely planted last fall,
and the always satisfying oak tree garden. Today in bloom are mertensia blue and white, bleeding heart red and pink, dogtooth violets almost gone by, hellebore, Sun Disc narcissus ditto, yellow epimedium and grape hyacinths. Still to bloom are tulips and English bluebells.
