It’s been awhile coming this spring. With the winter we’ve had here in our Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood, it’s seemed like forever.
Flower power arrived yesterday.
We received the first burst of color. It came from the plant above, the one that we thought was from a tulip bulb that Karen missed when she was digging up that little corner of the front yard garden.
It’s not. We don’t know what it is. Karen doesn’t recall putting a new bulb there.
The forsythia in the main front garden has pushed out a touch of yellow.
It’s gotten taller and wider, but that’s not a lot of flowering yet compared to last year.
The peony is just beginning to push up some green shoots.
It’s hard for me to reckon that this plant starts anew each year and grows so big and plush. You’ll get a show later when it blooms so magnificently.
The azalea is welcoming green leaves down low.
This bush has widened considerably.
The small, red flowers will make a subtle statement.
They all will have to battle the snow forecast for later today, of course.
Get ready, garden.
