THAT was worth visiting. I love how her head is ducked demurely, with the
droplets of rain and dew glistening off each birth petal. The protective
sheath already starting to turn to crape paper which will later dry out and
detach from the stem once the flower sets seed or doesn't. thank you. It
was as appreciated as my first golden crocus today finally revealing herself
in the pot on my way to my car in the driveway. It grabbed my eye and I was
literally hooked like a fish on a trot line. I had to stop and gaze down
into her perfection too. There is NOTHING like the first yellow's and
golden colors of pre-spring amongst the drabs and winter greens.
madgardener, up on the ridge, back in Faerie Holler, overlooking English
Mountain in Eastern Tennessee, where I heard hordes of hopeful but early
PEEPERS around East Towne Mall tonight and tomorrow's highs will be a
kissing of low 60's again.............zone 7, Sunset zone 36
cool, i'm so glad you liked it. i've beet watching that baby for days, she
shot up overnight, but then sat there in bud form, waiting all week to
bloom, until yesterday afternoon. of course, i waited until it started
raining to grab the camera and photograph her today.
she's a welcome addition to the landscape. the purple heather is nice, but
there's nothing like a little yellow to brighten up the day.
In Northern California also.................
Silvery Pussywillows are breaking out of their shiny brown coats
Golden trumpets of daffodils are unfurling
Beekeepers are bringing their beehives to the almond orchards
Bees are delighting in Hellebore's green skirts
plants are beginning the game of "musical chairs" as I divide and move
them to new homes.
