I made a mental note to add more spring bulbs in the fall (which I did).
The first variety just bloomed for Easter: Tete-a-Tete which is a cute miniature yellow blooming variety brightening at least one side of the path.
On the other path border I added early and late season blooming tulips which the rabbits had for breakfast.
Look at the difference between last April and this April.

More to come as more varieties of bulbs will bloom soon.
Other blooms that started since last week are:
| Lungwort or Pulmonaria (zone 3-8)|
|Cut-leaved toothwort (native ephemere bloomer) or Cardamine concatenata (z. 3-8)|
This plant is still sold by nurseries as Dentaria lancinata. Although the leaves are toothed, the common name probably is in reference to the tooth-like projections on the fleshy rootstock. The toothworts are sometimes called pepperroots in reference to the spicy, radish-like flavor of the rhizomes which can be cut up and added to salads.
