From My Inspiration File: Spring Is Here

I photographed some new treasures in our yard and gardens over the weekend, as we continue to find more signs of this early spring we are having… and loving!

This week, our forsythia bloomed with an explosion of yellow. Every time I look out our windows that face South, I see this magnificent yellow glow.

The buds on our magnolia shrub are about to open. They are so elegant looking at this stage.

Our first tulip opened over the weekend. I am always surprised when this one opens because I forget that we planted such a classic red tulip.

The buds on many of our trees are popping too, adding that fresh spring green color, which makes me so happy.

Such an exciting time of year to watch the colors change from brown and grey to spring green and yellow and red and purple. Thanks for stopping by!

Garden Update – Yellow

I continue to find more goodies blooming in our gardens. For this week, my theme turned out to be yellow.

Some yellow buds are welcome sights to see, like this forsythia shrub.

Other yellow blooms are not welcome at all!

Some yellow bulbs ended up being a nice surprise. I love finding bulbs bloom in places where I didn’t plant them.

It’s going to be fun to find treasures in my garden based on a color theme. Most of our daffodils are still blooming like crazy, so the next round of bulbs to open will probably be tulips, which could take a few more days, since we’re still waiting for temps to warm up!
