  5. Catherine, you have a beautiful garden. And so spring-y! It looks like you are about two weeks ahead of ours. We're in zone 6a, southern IL. The daffodils are blooming, but not the bleeding hearts. Soon! I don't have the white bleeding heart in our garden, but it's on my "gotta get it" list. It looks like your garden is similar to ours in that you don't mind new plants popping up where they might. The navelwort 'Starry Eyes' is beautiful! Another one for that list of mine... :) ~~Rhonda

  14. Happy Spring day to you too Catherine. I cannot believe how much things are growing at your home. Just look how the pathway is filling in. I took camera in hand this morning at looked to see what was growing the first day of spring and was delightfully surprised at all the things going on. Cooler weather is coming in tonight but hopefully it will not stay now.
    Have a good weekend.

  25. lovely depiction of spring Catherine. It sure has arrived here - I spent yesterday in the garden - without a coat on and for the first time and the bees were buzzing all around me. I had a clothes line full of laundry and it all dried outside. My house has been like a laundry all winter.

    Happy Gardening

  29. What a fantastic way to celebrate the first day of Spring. Your photos express the beauty and warmth of the Season. The bird is precious. He made my heart smile today.

  31. Happy Spring to you, too! Today is a great day to fly a kite!

  32. The little Wren is so sweet and look at your flowers. You have so much color going on already. I'm very envious.
    Hey I just remembered a hummingbird flew over my head the other day. Guess I'd best be putting those feeders out.
    I don't know if you checked back at my post but in answer to your question - no I did not plant the Huckleberry Bushes. I have 3 old growth stumps that I've had to fight husband, loggers and the stump grinder to keep. Each has a wild Huckleberry bush on top of it and I also have to fight birds to get at least one taste each year. But that one taste takes me back so many years.

  35. Your garden is such a credit to you! It's looking beautiful. You have so many lovely blooms already!
    I just love that picture of the sweet little song sparrow.
    Isn't it wonderful to hear the birds singing and to see blooms in the garden again? And what a joy it is to be able to get outside and work in the garden!!!
    Happy spring, Catherine!
