Buona Pasqua!

31 Mar


Referring to my Italian roots and wishing a Happy Easter!  Good weather on Saturday allowed me the opportunity to spend the day gardening yesterday — I never noticed how much developing daffodil blooms look like pistachios on stalks!   And I always *wow* when I can find the emerging bleeding hearts – they look like little hands reaching for the sun.  Welcome Spring!Pistachios on Stalks!Developing Daffodil bloomDeveloping daffodilBleeding Heart emergingBleeding Heart emerging

I wonder how those blooms are doing today under a blanket of white?

Spring has sprung, but not Spring weather

It’s Spring and the start of taking photos of daily blooms in the garden.  This year the blooms are delayed since the weather is still 10 degrees below average here in Maryland.  Helebores are the first to bloom, along with the white crocus,  followed by the mini Tete-e-tete daffodils …Blooms 003 White Crocus Tete-a-tete mini daffodilsClose up of mini daffodils
