Larkspur, or "rabbit flower" as my sister and I used to call them--see the rabbit's head in the center of the flower?

Back border with the large shrub, lespedeza, in bloom
Helleborus, deer-resistant mainstay of the late winter garden 
Pot of Muscari, or blue bottles, I have had in this pot for several years.  I put it somewhere out of the way when it's not blooming.

    1. Thank you! My hellebores reseed politely, and spread, so I hope yours will do the same. I gave my mother some of my "babies" and they look happier at her house than they were at mine :)
