Blogging again

It seems a bit awkward to begin blogging again after a bit of a hiatus. So much has happened to us and to the garden that it is hard to know where to start. So I'll just throw up some pictures of my garden this week and see where this leads us.

The Forsythia has past and as you can see, my PJM rhody is droping its blossoms.

Aren't bleeding hearts the most amazing construction? The dwarf deutzia next to it is also a stunner in bloom. Next week for that one maybe.

I love the colors of new spring growth on the spireas.

The magnolias are going too.....

Retirement has given me a chance this year to really watch the parade of blooms and has left me with a true sense of awe. For decades I have called April 15 to July 15 the 100 days of hell because work was so demanding during that time. I think I literally missed the magic of the season. Or, perhaps, I am just getting older and am trying to spend more time being in the moment. In any case, spring is pretty fabulous around here. And there's more to come!

Spring truly is a magical time. I think appreciation for it becomes more acute with age. :)

Hullo again. I always look forward to your return. Looking at the pics from your garden i was struck again at the differences of our environments, we're going into winter now,and not a little envious of your magnolias which I could never have. However, isn't that the joy ~ there is a different beauty to be found everywhere.
