Garden Update: Slower Spring

Spring has slowed down a little bit around here with our recent overcast, cooler days. Darn, I was loving all that sunshine and summer temps.

So far, we’ve seen our crocuses bloom, our daffodils continue to open, our forsythia shrub is still glowing yellow but slowly changing to green, our red tulips are just about finished but more tulips are continuing to grow, and the tree buds are still sprouting but have slowed down a little bit.

I was feeling anxious to find something new from our gardens to share with you.

I already showed you our magnolia blossoms.

They are so beautiful that I just had to share more shots from a different perspective. I really want to use the colors and shapes in these shots as inspiration in my sketchbook.

Our vinca vines are coming back to life and filling out quite beautifully underneath our crapapple tree.

I never tire looking for treasures throughout our yard, even if not much has changed since my last update. It’s also good inspiration as I learn how to use my camera. I hope you don’t mind. We’re supposed to have more sunshine this week, so I’m hoping to find more new blossoms. Thanks for stopping by!
