Spring isn't just in the air

My favorite thing about spring is the color it brings to my yard. Whether hidden, like the strawberries, or in plain site, like the brilliant flowers, or chameleon-ized, like the not-yet-ripe tomatoes, color abounds throughout the green. Trees have their leaves again and are letting go of their flowers to produce peaches, apricots, limes, and cherries. The herbs are tantalizingly spreading their aromas. Even the gardenias are in full bloom right now.  It's a wonder I get anything else done.

  1. Gorgeous color and texture ... is that a columbine?

    Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog today -:)

  2. Actually Chuck, it's a delphinium. But the Columbines are beautiful too. :)

  3. I'm sorry. My mistake. That one is my foxglove. My delphiniums are doing nicely too though.

  4. such a lovely description of your garden. It made me miss mine--it's a continent away and I miss its steady evolution at this time of year.
