|Early daffodils, late March|
But, the daffodils reliably reward us by multiplying. This year there was a late freeze so a few hundred of the earliest buds were frozen and didn't have the opportunity to open.
Every spring I'm surprised to see old friends returning. Between the colder than normal winter following 2 years of drought one never knows!
|Arum spring emergence|
|Goji berries are getting going|
|Blackberries leafing out|
|Cherry tree spring growth|
|Forsythia blooming on the back fence|
The fruit trees, brambles and strawberries are greening up, too. Flowers are popping out, and the herbs are returning with the spring sun.
|Creeping Thyme peeking out of leaf cover|
|Bridal Veil Spirea about to burst into flower|
|Daffodils with Hyacinth|
So far, it's promising!
At this time of year, every day surprises pull us outside to clean beds just to be out there and to see what else is waking up.
