A Little Bit O' Spring
It has been too rainy on the days I am able to take pictures so I never got any daffodil pictures but Spring is, indeed, arriving in Portland. Today was lovely so I walked around the yard tonight and snapped a few pictures. This is the Mrs. G.W Leek, one of my favorites, just getting rhododendron season started.
Grape Hyacinths in the path to the pond. I let them bloom where they are planted (or turned up!).
Bergineas by the fish pond. The pump gave up last fall so the waterfall has been off all winter. The fish seem to have grown and thrived in spite. I have the new pump sitting on the patio and The Husband pulled out his fishing waders tonight so I can wear them to wade in and install the new pump. Looking forward to that adventure - not!
Silver Dollar plants. The flowers are so much different that the seed pods they are known by.
The Camellias are just about done but I found one bloom still photo-worthy. There is a quote... Spring comes and the grass just knows to grow. How lucky are we?!
