Didn’t spring just arrive? According to my calendar, yes. My garden, however moves along at a different pace. Buds are forming on the berry vines, but everything else seems to be heading for the leafy stage of growth. Green is my favorite color so I’m not completely disappointed, but the contrast of pinks, purples, reds and golds is visually stunning. Only two small blooms remain on the Hardenbergia. This time next week that spectacle of color will be a distant memory. The Azaleas are popping in pinks and whites. Soon they’ll flaunt a brilliant show of color.
Taking photographs each day is a rewarding experience. I’ve bared witness to things in the garden I might have otherwise missed. This time next year I’ll have a record for comparison. Today I’m working on living in the moment. Perhaps my garden is right on schedule and only now am I taking proper notice.
