Spring did not skip over my garden today! She arrived with sunny skies and seasonable temperatures and brought with her more crocus blooms.
The days of the first crocus, just a month or so past, are fast disappearing in the rear view mirror.
Anticipated events of spring are now more clearly in focus before us.
Everyday, there is a new bloom in the garden and a new task to be done.
Within a matter of days, I will be mowing the lawn again, picking daffodils to bring indoors, and marveling at how yellow a forsythia bloom really is.
I already have this bright yellow in the garden.My first lone little Iris danfordiae has plenty of company now.
And nearby is the color blue.I smile every day when I see these Iris reticulata ‘Clairette’ blooming in my front garden.
Now it’s time to buy violas and pansies to put in some containers on my front porch. It’s time to celebrate spring in the garden with a full-fledged GADS attack before I get down to some serious spring garden renovations.
And with the observance of the Easter Triduum from Holy Thursday through Easter Sunday, it’s a good time to take a break from daily blogging. I’ll return on Monday morning with a special guest post.
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices…
Have a Happy Spring and a Happy Easter!
