Serious Spring Fever

There can be no hiding my joy in seeing all the vibrant signs of Spring — I’ve got the fever bad! I popped tomato plants in the vegetable bed along with seeds for lettuces, radishes, cilantro, parsley, basil and more. While those are busy sprouting, the classic dogwood is in prime bloom.

Next to our Eddie’s White Wonder dogwood, the rhubarb emerged and decided to bloom immediately. I’ve never seen this before. It’s pretty spectacular.

My first year with double freesia. They don’t have the intense scent of the single blossom, but I’ll take them anyway!

And with very little water, the succulents are happy,

These little things bring big pleasures.

    We live in a really sheltered part of the UK, usually dry and warm. This year spring is really late. We don’t even have daffodils – they are over a month late. Our weather isn’t really ‘as advertised’, it doesn’t rain all the time, but it’s good to know that it’s odd all over the world this year.

    So nice to see spring somewhere. The spring in DK is also a month behind. When I saw your photos I went to our garden to look for the rhubarbs but all I could see was a tiny red spot. Luckily they are just late.

    Your photographs are amazing! I love them all, but the one of your flowering dogwood is my favorite. I can’t get over the picture of your rhubarb in bloom—I didn’t know rhubarb had flowers! If I didn’t already have Spring Fever, I’d most certainly catch it from you!
