That's doing well !
Is the area near the pond a dry, sunny spot ?

yes, it's on the sun baked side of the pond along with other rockery plants it's very hot and dry there.

I also have this near my pond, unlike yours it isn`t in bud yet...

oddly enough some of the buds were from last year that never opened but have done now, but it's full of new buds, i have been lucky here the weather has been warm and bright..
