If it weren't for the lovely bird song that fills my garden it would seem pretty dismal right now. . . .
The crocus is our harbinger of Spring so it deserves to be front and center!
Next comes the jolly daffodils with their nodding heads of bright yellow!
These little blue flowers are finding their way through the leaf clutter. . . .
The Periwinkle is getting ready to burst out!
Irises are emerging from their long winter's sleep. . . .
And the dependable Dianthus has reappeared, again, along with the Sedum Autumn Joy that will wait its turn to bloom at the end of the summer. . . .
The Rose bush is putting out shoots. . . .
Columbine is waking up. . . .
As is the Yarrow. . . .
The Bleeding Hearts are springing up out of the ground and will be in bloom in no time at all!
Lambs Ears are poking their heads up through last year's leaves. . . .
And the Lilac is stirring to life. . . .
Azaleas are budding getting ready to display their array of colors. . . .
Even the Irish Moss in the Fairy Garden is starting to show green. . . .
When all looks barren and hope seems lost…..look closer….
