February in the Garden - First Leaves

Pin It

Browns, grays and the non-deciduous greens of redwood trees are the palette of my garden right now. So much so that tiny leaves like these, stretching all of their half-inch length to see the sun, go un-noticed amid the tangle of bare branches and twigs.

It was after I saw this variegated Spirea beginning to bud that I really saw how the garden has been stirring to life. More bud photos to follow ...

It is so lovely.
Red, orange, yellow and light green.
Browne scenery suit this very well.

Thank you Makiko for your lovely words.

Yes, Sylvia, spring is whispering, even in the face of rainy skies.
