"The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting."
We have had several days of rain and today is bright but mostly overcast. I have been waiting with anticipation because I know a good rain followed by warm sunshine brings a burst of life to the gardens.

|Yellow Primrose is the most beautiful of all!|
|This little native gem came from my neighbors lawn.|
|There are only a few buds but, this is the first year the Azalea is going to bloom. I had it in a bad spot the first couple of years and not that its in the woodland garden it's doing well.|
|The Wild Violets are beginning to bloom.|
|I planted 6 Fritillaria and 6 came up. All but one is blooming.|
|Silene....a very faithful and long time bloomer|

|What a difference a day can make this time of year. This picture and the one below are of the same plants....|
There's so much breaking ground now. It's so wonderful to walk outside and see more life everyday. As usual, I don't remember where I planted things so it's kind of like opening presents...the anticipation is wonderful.
I'm so grateful that we've had decent rain this Spring.
