fast forward

This year the snow and ice lingered on and on until I could hardly bear another day of looking at it. After it melted, the plants seemed to come rushing out of the ground at warp speed. For the past couple of weeks, every morning is like christmas and I find surprises in each corner of the garden.

The Siberian Squill is spreading

This patch of white Squill is on its last legs

The Heaths are taking over this slope and it is alive with bees

The asparagus-like Solomon's Seal is being charmed out of the ground by warm spring sunshine

Solomon's Seal is one of my faves. Reliable and understated:)

Viagens pelo Mundo said...

I'm coming through Mr. Lee's blog. This is my presentation visit. I'm from Portugal, love flowers too, I also have a dog - a funny Yorkshire Terrier - and my blog is about our trips around the world. I'm now writing about our trip to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique, which took us 1 month in 2007. You are most welcome to have a look at our pictures.
Have a nice day.
