Re: more pics posted


The photos are indeed gorgeous.
As I plod through this gray rainy spring, it has dawned on me that, even with grey skies, and just some bulbs blooming so far (Chionodoxa are unbelievably blue!) , this is the season I love the most. BEFORE everything is up and open. Seeing the starts, the old favories and the more recently planted lovelies, poking their noses out of the ground to see if it's safe to come out. I get giddy as more an more of them say, "ok, it's time." A week ago there was no sign of life in the Anemone nemerosa 'Robinson' patch; suddenly they're all up and beginning to unfurl their leaves, while on the plain A nems flower buds have begun to appear and A ranunculoides is already 6 in tall with buds.

I watch for signs of life on Paeonia obovata, even though I know it is always later than the rest, but P.japonica is showing rapid growth. New buds on shrubs give me such delight and my Magnolia, which I thought was dying, still has nice buds. It's all these fresh starts that liven up the garden in ways somehow more glorious than full growth, that make me smile as I trudge back and forth cleaning, digging, and potting.
