Awakening

Pictures from a stoll through the yard yesterday evening:



New growth on the Playboy rose.
Paperwhite buds. (These were open this morning when I left for work.)

More Paperwhites- in the back yard. (Or are they something else? I didn't plant them; they came with the house. I've only moved them.)

Limes: I don't think they're any good, since they went through the freeze.

Blossoms on the Nectarine tree in the front yard.

A close-up of a nectarine blossom. The tree has been in bloom for about a week now.

The Forsythia... It's not thriving, but it's certainly alive.




A daffodil, maybe? I don't know, but I didn't plant anything new this year.


Black Bamboo.

My garden is waking too. I also have daffodils in bud, the Mexican plum is close to flowering, and I have hyacinths in bloom. With more days like today---what is it, 80 degrees out there?---everything will be awake soon.

Hmmm, yours is the second Blogger blog that I've noticed will not provide a link to my site through my comments, even though I provide my web address under the "other" identity. I decided to comment again to try a trick someone told me about, to see if the link will go through this time.

OK, that worked. Thanks for letting me experiment, R.

Whatever that white small cluster daffodil is, it's beautiful! The flowers look pretty big for paperwhites - maybe it's an heirloom type?

I'm so envious of your black bamboo.

How's your Mexican plum doing--I remember you saying you had an especially nice-smelling one. Mine just exploded in bloom, yesterday, as did my neighbor's redbud (finally) and the cedar elms.
