Popped up!

19 comments:
 a little sun and a little rain 
and look what popped up
 dozens of bulbs were planted 
starting in October 
and the first guys "up" were these
 the fox gloves are just getting started

 I can't believe the apples are budding out already!

 a little bit of the lavender is blooming
 and a few others just sort of 
"woke up"
 this last week
 even the kitchen garden is humming along

the start of something new...?

"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning,
 but anyone can start today and make a  new ending"

here's to new and wonderful endings!

  4. Hi to all!

    Yes we have had a very mild winter so far and everything is early!

    But it is nice to know what is ahead for every one...right? And at least you don't have earthquakes....

  6. Nothing is popping up here yet, but we've had such a mild winter that I think we will see an early spring. Your flowers are so pretty and will have to tide me over until March when ours start blooming!

  10. Your photos are beautiful. Hard to believe that you have blooms already. Here in Oklahoma the only thing I see is about 4 inches of my jonquils popping up. We have had a warm winter so far. Probably will snow in March!
    Love your blog !

  13. Our winter has been much like yours, Camillia bushes have been blooming since Christmas! It makes me a little sad to think of the long hard summer we will probably have in exchange for this early spring! Also...I'm SOO confused about when to plant my veggie garden now!
