There really isn't much to show in my garden yet, but the budding of branches, the rapid growth of lilies and tulips pushing determinedly through the soil, and the promise of patches of mint give me a feeling of unshakeable hope. I like to take pictures at this time of year to remind me in the months to come of how quickly something can change.
These guys came in much earlier this year, as did everything. Wake up earth! Spring is here.
We planted these fruit trees last year (golden delicious and Fuji apple, and Honeysweet and Olympic Giant pear), and know it will still be a few years before we see fruit, but the buds are exciting nonetheless.
Empty beds, waiting to be prepared and sown.
Do you have a garden? What's growing in yours?
