I love these early days of spring. I find the garden so beautiful when the ground is still bare but you can see shoots and leaves and florets--and all that lovely green-- emerging. I like to walk around my garden and greet all the plants (oh yea, you're back!) that are waking up from the winter. I like to see the garden in its bare bones, assess the placement of plants and what I might change or what I can add. I love to clean out the leaves and winter debris to find a clump of hellebore babies coming up. Larkspur seedlings are popping up all over. I love to see all the shades of green, so fresh. The greens seems to brighten overnight. It's such a miracle, truly.
