Spring Flowering Trees and Shrubs in the Jarvis House Garden

 This is the beautiful Red Bud tree which really put out the blooms this Spring.
 The split leaf maple starting out.   I picked this tree when it was only two leaves large, from a lawn in Lloyd Harbor.  It is a mutant tree.
A grafted split leaf maple.
 A Japanese Quince.
The delicate and very white,  Bridal Wreath.
 A Spike which I wintered in the barn.
 Candy  Tuft in a cement planter won't get lost in this garden.

 Bleeding Heart a lovely and easily naturalized plant.
 The white Bleeding Heart which I received from my son many years ago for Mother's Day.  I have since split it many times.
 Red maples which I rescued from my sister's garden.
A new fern and Sweet Woodruff  growing below the Rhododendron.

This is a picture that my friend suggested I take from across the street at the Cinema Arts Center.  The Jarvis House is across the way. Peace.

Your flowers are so different to ours. Yours are so delicate and pretty. Love the Red Bud tree and the bleeding hearts.
