It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Late Spring

Actually seeing growth now in the garden, even though the ground is still damp from soaking rains. Very little sunshine along with cool days has been the norm for the past few weeks. A lesson in patience. If Mother Nature wants to slow things down, who are we to argue and complain with Her.



Lupins beginning to bloom

 

Clematis beginning to climb

Iris beginning to bud

Blueberry bush beginning to show flowers
What pleasure there is to walk through the yard and observe the return of perennials after a long, harsh winter.  Imagining these hardy souls buried beneath many feet of snow who then rouse themselves to break away from that deep slumber to rise and climb towards sun and sky. I definitely see a metaphor there, don't you?

Sending out blessings for a wonderful, creative, happy week....maybe not so much rain, if possible.
 

And now for some squirrel acrobatics....a daily exercise (forgive the photos, taken through the window screen)

Hi Robin ;o) I was just walking around my garden yesterday. I thought somethings had died, but they have all came up! I love what you said- "Imagining these hardy souls buried beneath many feet of snow who then rouse themselves to break away from that deep slumber to rise and climb towards sun and sky. I definitely see a metaphor there, don't you? " Love your pictures as always and aren't those squirrels cute ;o) Many blessings to you my friend ;o)

Dark Mother, it is very enjoyable to stroll through the gardens of the blog-o-sphere.just about everyone I follow has a garden!

Christer, how odd that we have a lot of the same plants, and there all at different growths.

Gotta love the squirrel pics! ;)

We are supposed to have weather in the 80's here - no rain. We shall see, my friends!

Blessings to you as always,

Kim

Your gardens are looking healthy and beautiful, can't wait for that iris to open up; they're one of my favorite flowers!

I'm glad I'm not the only one with an acrobatic squirrel in the yard. :)

Thank you so much for your sweet well wishes.

Robin Larkspur said...

Danni, I guess life would be a little dull without those furry rodents!

Mina, get well!
