When it comes, the Landscape listens --
Shadows -- hold their breath --
More rain brings the budding flowers to the forefront. The mid-winter blooming Camellias are saying goodbyes. The late-winter Camellias are fully budded and showing color. Cold was not kind to the paler ones. On Friday we had rain early and again after lunch, scattered showers that passed through quickly. The big box stores are putting out plants, I noticed from the truck window. We needed cough syrup and catfood, not more work just now.
Seedlings are coming on fast: Three kinds of Poppies; Larkspur and Catchfly. They will hide some of the maturing daffodil foliage which will need lots of hiding cover. Hyacinths take longer than daffodils to go away, but this year's blooms show the value of patience while they linger.
Poppies and some interesting fungi.
Lilies are coming up prematurely. Must protect from frost.
My first parsley seedling is up.
Watching for nasturtiums any day.
Outside, the redbud tree on the north side is starting to bloom.
The one at the southwest corner of the house looks bare.
I noticed pear trees blooming between here and town, and tulip magnolias.
Buffy finds joy in rainwater.
