Sunshine in the Garden



A wander through the garden (by way of very soggy grass) reveals the first buds of spring - sharply pointed iris leaves, tiny hydrangea sprouts, neon green curled parsley, tight lilac buds, and almost grotesquely crumpled rhubarb emerging from the dark earth. 
 

Primroses on this sunny Sunday hold just a few lingering drops of all the rain we've had this week. Sunshine and rain - that's what makes the garden grow! Hooray for the first Sunday in March!

Linking to Sunlit Sunday, hosted by Karen of My Little Home and Garden, and to
Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary of the Little Red House.

  2. Hello, Lorrie

    There is something about the first signs of spring green that calls to my heart and says that the new season will be full of hope and promise. I'm still in snuggle-down mode here, with some snowflakes falling, but spring will come, slowly eastward. Please pass on a map for Spring, just in case.

    Your mosaic is stunning, as are the vibrant primroses; thank you so much for participating in "Sunlit Sunday" with them.

    Have a wonderful week.

    -Karen

  8. My rhubarb has been showing the same as yours for a few weeks now as are hyacinth, tulips, daffs and crocus. Clematis is also showing new growth. Love the promise of pretty things coming.
