Well, as is typical for Seattle in Spring, it is overcast today, but in honor of the new season, I went outside and took photos of my garden anyway. There are always things blooming, though I expect to have sunnier, more flowery photos to show later in the season.
As always, the native currant (Ribes sanguineum) off my back patio is spectacular in early Spring:
A friend gave me bird ornaments for Christmas -- after I'd taken the tree down (it was a rather late gift...) so I hung them from the Ribes:
Here's a shot of the spirea off my carport -- and remember, folks, you can always click on photos here to open a larger version!
Next I tried to take a photo of the vinca (AKA periwinkle) that I planted last fall near the faux woodland stream, but someone got in the shot:
So I took a photo of the little pansy violets (what I call "Johnny Jump-Ups") in the flower bed instead:
Then I tried for another photo of the vinca....
So I went out to the front garden to snap a pic of the quince:
And then back to the vinca...I think this is the best I'm going to get of this plant:
I hope you are all enjoying the first day of Spring. I know Truman is!
