I saw beauty in the garden and it really made me feel better and actually hopeful ?
Beautiful healthy hellebore .. the only problem is that there are a few that I am not sure which cultivars they are .. so I will have to wait for the flowers to give me a hint on the name.
I do know that this last one is Ivory Prince and that he holds his foliage very nicely : )
This was a nice close up on a pretty bud reaching out for the sun .. but again, not sure which one this is. I may have to take advantage of your keen eyes and list the 13 or 14 different ones I have ?
This is Golden Sage that has come through the winter and is trying to look like it's name.
I thought the light filtering through the leaves was really quite pretty.
If you look into the background .. as fuzzy as it is .. you see nature happening .. these local finches are trying to make the hole in what was our nesting Chickadee's house from last year, bigger to suit themselves ! .. I feel kind of sad, nothing against these finches but I really loved seeing the Chickadees .. we have two other bird houses coming and I have to find the hole guards that keep larger birds from kicking smaller ones out !!
Winthrop and the boys have "weathered" the winter yet again .. but Winthrop surveys the back garden in deep thought .. is this Spring or is it "Spring Deception" ?
