Spring, part 2

Today it hit 80ºF/26ºC again. So warm, so sunny. I did a little yard cleanup at lunch, but that's not what this post is about. This post is more images of spring's arrival in my garden.

If you're tired of this type of image, then you must live somewhere nice and warm, where winter is either long past or something you only read about, or hear about from the tourists. The rest of us, well, we need this.


Our temperatures will be dipping back near freezing in a few days, so I'm going to enjoy this while I can.

More pine sap drips.

Creeping Jenny, which I have everywhere.

Forsythia flower, much closer than usual.
I've never noticed the striations before.

Dicentra is so pretty before it greens up.

Agastache foeniculum -- one of the most
deliciously fragrant leaves in my garden.

Japanese barberry.

Clover, which owns a large portion of my lawn.
Good thing I really like it.

My climbing rose is finally going to be
impressive this year, I can just tell.

I'll be taking bamboo shoot photos for the next few months.

It won't be long before everything is green and pretty, and photos like this remind me of that fact which I seem to forget every year.

Love the pics Alan.

That rose looks in really good condition. Looking forward to seeing some photos of that in full bloom.

Hi Alan, here it's the start of autumn and like in spring I can see tiny shoots shooting, and it is a wonderfully happy-making sight. Like a triumph of nature - sometimes I think a plant has died, but no, it tells me - it was just having a nap. cheers, catmint
