The first week of March has been up and down weather wise. I am not complaining though because there are flashes of color in the garden now. I just have to get out to look at it.
The hellebores have been happy with the turbulent weather. They don't care if the sky is blue or grey. They open and show their pretty faces.
All of these are well established. Nothing much in the line of weather will deter them once they decide it is time to bloom.
This white hellebore is a new one. I didn't purchase it. It just appeared. What a nice surprise.
There has even been a bee or two in the garden. Now this really makes it feel like spring...
As do the crocus popping up in the lawn.
There are promises of more blooms to come.
While in the garden yesterday I found a tiny surprise. This little surprise couldn't have made me happier. It is the promise of a new beginning for my tree peony. Last year it seemed to die. The harsh dry summer was just too much for it. So I cut it to the ground thinking I would dig it out later. I never got around to doing that. Happily it appears that it will come back. I will have to wait to see what is going on with it. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Have you found any surprises in your garden yet this year?
