Although it was muddy, I took a walk through my yard this afternoon before heading back to the office. I was really looking at the vegetable plots I just planted although it’s only been a few days. I’m already on seed watch, waiting for the signs of the first sprouts. But while traipsing through the yard, I started to see the signs of spring starting to show. I took some photos of some of my favorites.
Spring beauties can be found in the grass and are pretty darn small, but when a bunch of them bloom at the same time, your grass is transformed into a carpet of pink. This was the first to come out this year.
I love the dark color of this iris. It’s the first one out this year – can’t wait to see the others as they join it.
Crocuses are definitely the harbingers of spring. These bright yellow flowers were just starting to peak out amongst the leaves. Love the bright color
The daffodils are on the cusp of blooming. So many in the yard are at this stage it should be quite a show when they all open up.
The Hellebores were just starting to flower too. I found this one almost fully open and several just starting to bud. I had to uncover them from the leaves to get a better look.
