Spring

Spring

Welcome to the Spring Gallery.  At each point along that gracious season’s fertile arc, evidence of life’s irresistable surge is everywhere in my garden.  Through the photos in this gallery, I’ll try to relate to you the beauty of spring’s earlier months and weeks, as green leaves and stems emerge and grow, and colorful flowers smile up at the heavens.  Throughout this time, the days can be sunny, or rainy.  Sometimes, they’re both.  But at no time during this roughly first half of spring do the days become oppressively hot or frigid.  It’s a middling time of middling sun, middling gray, middling warmth, and middling cool.  And for the plants in my garden that awaken and thrive under its evident auspices, it is the perfect time.  Please enjoy the photos.  I’ll be continually adding more, so please stop in often.  Cheers, and Happy Gardening!

Hellebore seedling. Since (for the most part) I keep my planting beds mulched with wood chips, it's difficult for seeds of any variety to start. There are some areas in my garden that I don't mulch (or very lightly mulch) in order for some of my naturalized plants to self-sow. In this case, however, a hellebore seed was carried far afield of its parent(s) and ended up taking root in an unmulched area. I potted it until I figure out where I'm going to permanently plant it. Cute little guy, I think.
