Hope Springs Eternal - Vernal Equinox 2011

Pin It
Bronze Freesia in the greenhouse
Garden bloggers throughout the northern hemisphere
have been waiting for this day to arrive after a  long, often harsh, winter.

Japanese Red Maple leaf buds

And even though the weather may not be all that spring-like in some places,

Tulip buds

it surely is in others and at least today

Unfurling fern #1

 we can all sing

 Happy Spring!

Unfurling fern #2

and know that new growth and the nurturing sun will soon be ours.

a most happy spring to you Christine. your season is much more advanced than here in the Midwest, but that's one of the most enjoyable things about blogging. I get to see all this unfolding no matter if I'm there or not. have a truly great Monday!
