It was a bitter morning but the sun came out and although there was a chilly breeze I forced myself out into the fresh air to see what was happening around the yard.
My little dragonfly votive holders made it through the winter, having been turned upside down so as not to catch water.My lavender seems to be doing well.The Hydrangea have buds.Little Rose buds are popping.I chopped the grasses down not long ago, to make room for new growth.My variegated Yucca seems to have made it through the winter and is being hailed by all the new daffodil growth.A very cold looking Deutzia bush.Lillies galore!One little Chickadee to say hi!A Mantis egg case on the lilac.Not sure about this one but it sure smells sweet!Remember these toadstools? They made it through the winter!A dead apple tree that is covered with beautiful lichen and that fuzzy little green thing. Blueberries????? I hope. I know they are here somewhere!This may be a type of Hazelnut bush? The seedpod of a Confederate Rose.Campion Rose and Hyacinth.And a tall daffodil ready to bloom.Come on SPRING!!!
