Signs of Spring

It stopped raining long enough for me to pop outside and enjoy the garden (quagmire) a little yesterday. It seems spring is on it’s way.


A primrose already!


Snowdrops are always a first but mid January?


Unexpected 4″ high rhubarb, nibbled already – must clean up the veggie patch!


A green Hellebore and a ladybird, this is way too early.


New tools at the ready, a little treat in the sales 🙂


More Hellebores, I love the colour they bring so early.


I hadn’t expected my Ceanothus to be blooming, even though it is well protected. Love my garden but more rain is on it’s way so I’ll be inside again for a while.

      You look pretty snowed in. Don’t be too jealous, we have frosts to come and I fear the poor rhubarb will be no more 😦

        At least rhubarb is fairly hardy….even with such set-backs (at least ours has always managed to come back from those too early warm days!!).

    Happy, happy photos! It’ll be 3-4 months before I see flowers like this in upstate New York!
