YES, IT AMAZES ME the things you find when you're outside cutting dead twigs and pushing last fall's leaves away. You see things waking up. Little sweet plants, such as...
|Violets! Look at this sweet, pink violet. And no slug bites!|
|Daffodils, just a few weeks away!|
|More daffs, just a few days away.|
|And these Tete-e-Tete mini-daffs I planted in this container three years ago. They're right on time.|
|And the first Pulmonaria blossom!|
|But of course, the little opportunistic weeds are also making their presence known.|
|But I don't mind a few weeds when I can see foliage like this too.|
|And foliage like this.|
|Tiny buds are emerging on this Spiraea.|
|My roses are budding out even though last year's ickies are still evident.|
|These Nandina berries were so photogenic they spoke directly to my camera and I just obeyed.|
|And check out Daphne odora, days away from blooming.|
|Sarcococca ruscifolia has been in bloom for several weeks. The scent is delicious!|
|And speaking of scent, my Chimonanthus praecox is so fragrant, I can smell|
a sprig of 3 blossoms from across the room!
