Spring Comes to My Garden
While waiting for a cake* to bake this afternoon I went out into the garden and realized that in just a few days things hav really started to happen. Here are some sketches of the earliest flowers to bloom. Yay – Spring!!!
The thing that caught my eye was that the camelia bushes seem to have bloomed overnight :
We’ve had crocuses for over a week – my husband planted them all over the lawn, which is pretty but not very practical for mowing!
I hadn’t noticed before that the daffodils had bloomed :
And I don’t know what this flower is called, but the snails have obviously been munching on the leaves for a while already!
