Things are going to pop.

Violets. The weeds I've learned to live with.

Camellia blooms.

Wintersown seedlings ready to be planted out.

Fancy daffodils. I planted the Eucalyptus last fall.

Tulip foliage. Will they bloom? Planted in the fall of 2007.

Ancient tulip foliage.

New growth on the unknown shrub, possibly cornus mas, probably not.


It's exciting to see these things return or grow. Thunderstorms and heavy rain passed through last night. It's 52 degrees. The high today might reach 70. There's fog this morning. The clouds have rolled out.

Second cup of coffee stroll:

Across the street, forsythia is starting to bloom. My own, rooted last spring, are putting out new leaves, no blooms.

New daffs in the perennial bed.

Daffs on the front slope. 200 went in this winter.

The Belle of Georgia peach is coming to life.

We started out this morning in the upper 40's going to reach a little above 70 here as well. After two days of rain I am excited to see what's going to be reaching for the sun this weekend!

Good morning Tom ~ Right now it is 62 and feels like it is 57. It is breezy, the sun is rising and shining in a big blue sky. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day after so much rain starting the night before last and through the day yesterday.

I love seeing your garden waking up. I can hardly wait to see your 200 daffies in bloom, and all the rest too. It is exciting.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

Your garden is so inspirational! It makes me want to get out in my own and sow some seeds! Too bad I can't see my garden until early May!

It is incrediblel that you are further north, yet at least a week ahead of what's going on in Atlanta! I'm terribly jealous!
