Early Spring in the Garden

Hello my friends,

It has been a while since I've had the opportunity to post.  The past couple of weekends have been filled with garden clean up.  I'm happy to write the first blooms have arrived.  

It's always uplifting to see color again in the garden.

The beginning of a new season ...

Lots of bright blues and purples ...

The very entertaining chipmunks are back.  I enjoy watching them scurry about the yard with their cheeks filled with gathered nuts and seeds.

Peonies are starting to emerge.  A new variety I planted in the fall called 'Terrific Gal'.  They will have a double row of ruffled rose petals with a wonderful fragrance.

Finches and sparrows are gathering twigs for their houses.  Bird nests are appearing in the trees ... they are singing a song.

Magnolia buds so pretty against the blue sky.

There is so much to look forward to ... spring is in the air.

Wishing you a fantastic weekend!

Hi Donna! It's been a while since I've seen your gardens. Looks like everything is coming up nicely! We aren't quite as far along but we'll get there soon! I hope you'll share pictures of the new peonies!
