It's SPRING!

Yes,  It's spring...

I know it officially started
a couple weeks ago...

but,  it hasn't been feeling too springy here,
until this weekend...

it was beautiful,
it was glorious...


the garden is a buzz...
blooms are popping open everywhere...

would you like to take a stroll?


the big old Magnolia in the front garden,
was the first tree we planted when we moved in...



there are a pair of smaller Magnolia shrubs
in the back...

this one the softest lavender shade...


this one pure white...



the Rockcress spills over the rockery...

a watering can in the background
lives a life of leisure this time of year,
it's services
completely unnecessary...

each season bring it's own surprises...

the Daffodil in the back
has a single trumpet....


the flower in the front,
seems to be a triple decker!

the bed has several of each style...


the evening song in the garden
is thick with the croaking of frogs...

I spotted the first eggs cluster this morning...


a patch of Anemone
sways softly in the breeze...


a lazy rabbit keeps watch
from a patch of faded Crocus...


these mystery flowers
come from a plant sale
several years ago....

can you name my mystery flower?


sweet Camellia...


potted Hyacinth
are a inside favorite in early spring...


for years,
I have been replanting them outside,
forming a boarder...


perfect for cutting :-)



Today I am joining...
and
Thanks for strolling with me today...
Happy Spring!
