A bit of a theme has appeared in the garden this year..
My wildflower garden was suddenly a sea of yellow and purple.
A bit of an unusual color combination, but I didn’t mind it!
The Allium bulbs that were planted last fall had sprouted up as fluffy purple spheres.
And the lone foxglove from last spring had certainly multiplied.
It’s interesting to watch what color themes emerge from the garden. It’s always changing.
It was late March, and it snowed again. For the fourth time. It rarely snows even once in March.
I was ready for warm weather, but I can never help being excited when I see the fluffy white snow cover all the flowers.
When snow was predicted in the forecast, my camera came to work with me in anticipation.
The snow finally started after many hours spent glancing up out the window every few minutes.
Many times throughout the day, my camera and I ran outside to take pictures of the cherry tree lined streets, as some of the biggest snowflakes I’d ever seen fell from the sky.
Later that day all the snow melted away when it turned to rain, like it had never even been there. Winter came back, just for a moment, and then it was finally gone.
It was a winter that was much colder than recent yeas had been.
The flowers that begun to spring up in January of last year were nowhere in sight until March.
The cold continued, and it snowed more times in March than it had for the entire winter.
On the second day of spring, as I watched the snow covered the flowers, I began to forget what warm days felt like. But now the snow has finally melted, and the cold has begun to fade away.. Winter might be nearly over.
Despite the cold that just wont seem to leave, flowers have begun to appear from the ground, and fill the yard with color.
Spring is one of the most exciting seasons, every day a little more green, and a little more color appears, after a long dark winter.
Through the drab brown leaves and dirt, green is beginning to appear.
The sun is shining for a little bit longer each day, and the air is feeling warmer and warmer.
Green is on the way!
