Spring you are so welcome!
What a difference a few warm days can make.
Give us a few good days up to 70 degrees and everything
starts growing in leaps and bounds.
While taking a walk around in the yard today I was checking out what was growing and was surprised to see a few blooms.
The Heath has a few little pink blooms hanging onto it.
Not as many as it usually has but I moved it last year so it has to make its way back again.
I also found my first two Daffodil blooms. Wow did they come on fast.
And it looks like there will be many more in the near future.
The poor smashed primrose had two pretty blooms open for me with some buds and new growth coming on.
I love primroses because they start blooming as soon as they start growing.
My hyacinths look sad though with so few buds.
I fear they have run their course after so many years and new bulbs need to be planted this fall.
I found new growth starting everywhere, such as the Achillea.
The white peach-leaf campanula which stays green under all of the snow but is now sending up new growth.
Clematis Silver Moon is always the first of my clematis to bloom and it is sprouting out now.
The Lambs Ear is getting tiny fuzzy mouse sized ears.
And wonder of wonders the Resurrection Lilies that I thought was a goner and even told one of the blogger buddies that it was dead has really Resurrected.
Now I am wondering if it will give me some blooms.
Magnolia Jane is getting its fuzzy buds. Reminds me of giant pussy willow buds. Looks like the spiders are moving about also from the web stretched across.
The pruned back rose bushes are starting to grow.
The Ornamental Strawberry is looking good.
And so is Waterfall spreading campanula.
The Maple trees are flowering now.
Also growing are the: Irises, tulips, lilies, salvia, heuchera,
foxgloves,columbines, penstemon, candytuft and many more.
So things are looking up around here on the hill and I say, Grow Baby Grow!
Seeing everything starting to grow makes me one happy gardener.
Even as happy as I feel it seems a little selfish in someway
as I am my heart goes out to the people of Japan and their great lose and tragedy that they are having to go through now. May way offer prayers and aide to them now in their time of need.
And to others who are at war now trying to gain their freedom that we so take for granted everyday.
Until Next Time,
