The Eve of Spring...

The Eve of Spring...

Finally!!

After an exceptionally hard winter, I can't tell you how glad I am that we have final reached this point in the changing of the seasons.

And now it begins...
With the first leaf-buds on the trees come the cherry blossoms...

the daffodils...

the flowering peach and the star magnolia.

Next come the peonies:
the early hybrids...

then the tree peonies...

followed by the lactiflora peonies...

and the hybrid tree peonies along with the bearded iris...

that dazzle in the end of May.

And before you know it...
daylily season is in full swing!

Happy Spring!
