Spring is springing in New England. It rains, it snows, gets warm, then chilly, sunny, cloudy, windy, calm, etc. Some things do continue on in their natural cycle. In my garden, the daffodils and forsythia are blooming bringing lots of cheerful yellow to the landscape. And its getting green.

My favorite part of spring are the ephemerals. Epimedium, trillium, primulas and all the little rock garden plants are waking up and unfolding.

And finally, a photo of our Easter morning kayak paddle out on the Nashua River near our house. One can’t be in the garden all the time.

  1. I am over in a different corner of Massachusetts, but we do have a similar climate. Which means I also get to enjoy primroses (you should see the Japanese primroses that bloom by May 15 in my swamp) and the fringed bleeding heart. Beautiful garden!
