Yesterday was a beautiful day in Eastern Ontario. Every day from Spring until Fall I love to go out and play in my gardens but this time I took my camera instead of a trowel.
I honestly can’t recall planting this early bloomer. If any of you recognize it, please tell me what it is. It stands out like a lone sentinel, the only flower in bloom in my entire garden.
The tulips and daffodils are about 6-8” high and still have a lot of growing to do before they come into flower.
Most of the perennials have started to show signs of awakening from their long winter sleep. This is one of my favorites…a beautiful cherry red lupines.
Even the lilac trees seem to be slower this year. This particular one is a very deep burgundy/purple and the scent from the flowers when they are in bloom is intoxicating.
If the temperatures hold at what they have been over the last few days or even get a little warmer, I’ll soon be able to replace my silk flowers with a natural bouquet from my garden. There’s nothing like fresh cut flowers in the Spring after a long winter.
It’s raining at the moment and the robins are loving it. Fresh worms…mmmmmm.
Happy stitching…and gardening!
