The First Blossoms in the Spring Garden

Hello and welcome to the spring garden! My favorite season in the garden is spring, with its wonderful exuberance of shapes, colors and textures that is especially welcome after the challenges of winter. For spring blossoms I rely on trees and shrubs, carpeted beneath by perennial bulbs.

The photos below are roughly in their order of bloom, spanning the end of February through the end of March.

Hopping into Spring

I can always tell that spring has truly arrived when I see bunnies hopping through my garden! They have already begun nibbling my flowers and the fresh green shoots growing through the mulch.
