We've had a lot of rain and cold weather again, but the sun came out yesterday!
I was so happy to go out and see what was new in the backyard. I've been noticing that our yard doesn't look so "dead" anymore. Even though not much is blooming, it just has a different look and feel about it. Sometimes a good rain makes the plants really "pop". Do you ever notice how things almost grow overnight after a good rain?
Here's what I found in our backyard:
My 70 percent off Pulmonaria.
Currant 'Wilder Red'
Marsh marigold before rain
The hardy fuchsia by the pond, it's alive!
A volunteer viola bloomed.
An oriental lily makes it way through to the light!
Muscari, just beginning to go for it!
That's a whole lot of new growth in just a few days! Sometimes it is worth being stuck inside for a few days when you get so much new color to look at.
