I've had some sad times recently and it helps to have the flowers making their Spring appearance.
Being a slightly obsessive gardener, I often have to make a conscious effort to just go into the garden and "enjoy". I always want to have my bucket/clippers/gloves, to pull a weed or pick up some debris or trim something.
Sometimes you just have to remember to breathe and enjoy what you have because nothing lasts.
|Crocus vernus 'Pickwick'|
|Daphne odora 'Zuiko Nishiki' - This one has a better smell than Daphne odora 'Marginata' but is not as pretty.|
|Trillium kurabayashii is up already - I'm happy to see it!|
|Crocus 'Blue Pearl'|
|A baby May Apple emerging.|
|Found this Crocus bulb on the side of the road. I gladly took it home and planted it.|
|Plants are popping out all over.|
|Embothrium coccineum (Chilean Flame Tree) - Looks a little sad but it made it through the winter.|
