Spirited Spring

Yes my gardening friends things are happening in the garden. It has been such a lovely spring so far. The mulching is finished. The last of the daffs are about to be warmed out of bloom.
One doesn't mind though because there will be more blooms arriving soon.
Lets take a stroll around the garden and see what is happening now. Of course you can be like Annie , sit back and relax. I will take you around.
If we actually begin out front you can see that we have quite a bit of pink going on.This dogwood tree is supposed to be red but it is a dark pink. I am not complaining as it has reliably bloomed for years.
 Around the corner of the house you can see how the front garden is definitely in the pink now.
 Looking back through the side garden gate you can see all that pinkness. Hmmm Note to self, more color needed here.
Walk across the patio and you can see lots of plants emerging.
 Come to the end and turn left you see the pea gravel path is beginning to come into it's own.

A closer look at the epimedium blooming makes one think the fairies will soon be coming out of hibernation.
Looking across the garden everything is greening up.

 And the foliage. You just can't get enough of the fresh foliage. It is thrilling to have leaves coming back on the trees...
What are some of your favorite sights in your garden this spring?

Bustin out

Spring is finally bustin' out here at Greenbow. 
The Crocus are Croaking almost as loud as the Spring Peepers. 
The Hellebores are being anything but boring. 
Even the Lady in Red has been coaxed out into the relatively warmer air. 
The early tall and short of daffodils are bloomin. 
All this just makes the heart fill with anticipation of what is to come. 
Happy Spring to Everyone. I hope your garden is awakening too.
