Sunday Stroll - Greening Up

In the herb garden,
grape hyacinth are blooming,

just a few feet from golden daffodils.

In the front yard, nestled in close to the house,
sunny squills are blooming pale and delicate,

at the edge of a sprawling patch of old-fashioned myrtle,
now bursting into bloom.

In the garden,
the purple tips of the first few spears of asparagus
are pushing up through the earth,

while rhubarb,

horse radish.

and chamomile thrive nearby, 
greening up and growing quickly 
with the first hints of warmth.

All around, the yellow cheer of early dandelions is emerging.
I am happy to see them,
and it seems I am in good company.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you good cheer!

Hop on over to the Steve's blog, Out on the Prairie, to stroll through the tulips!

Very cheerful. I need to look and see if I have enough rhubarb to make something yummy.I have a small obsession to look constantly for mushrooms lately. I told them at church yesterday that I was there, but could hear them popping up.

Connie, So nice to meet you! I will return the blog-visit very soon!

Steve, I understand that obsession with morels. It is such a short season. You have to get them while you can! I am waiting for a couple more inches of growth on my rhubarb, but will have to make a crumble or something soon. Have an great week!

I love the dandelion photo!!! My heart always goes out to these bright and cheerful little weeds. They are like Cinderella before her fairy godmother turns her into a rose :)
