A few pictures of early spring, just starting to pop. It has been a wet, cold & late winter this year, so not our best spring but still …. Here’s a few early pictures I took of my waking garden after a long winter, Warning if you don’t truly adore flower shots, skip this! I mean it, you’ll be bored silly.
You might say I like roses, last count I had 56 bushes, mostly the old fashioned looking types, like the David Austins.
Believe it or not, I’m trying to exercise some restraint with showing the multitudes of pictures I take in the garden. Many persons would reasonably ask, “How can any one person take so many shots of flowers?”.
Remember, I told you to skip this post if you don’t go ga-ga over flowers, fair warning.
One quick story, when my husband and I were a courtin’, he showed me the yard and it was in a bit of a bad shape. He said do you enjoy gardening?, slyly, hoping for someone who would take it in hand, loved weeding and all. I said with an uncharacteristically firm tone in my voice, coming from Nevada as I did, “I hate gardening! “. Holding up one of my perfectly groomed hands with the long nails [former manicurist] I added, rather loudly “It would ruin my manicure!”. He married me anyway…
And after I saw my first peony bloom in the back yard, I found my hidden inner gardener real fast! Never knew it was there!
