This morning when I went out to walk the sun had just come up and cast a glow that allowed the garden to be in perfect light. That kind of light that makes everything look good...even weeds. I stopped, went back inside for my camera and took this picture.
Although it is very early, I am beginning to see signs of spring. Some of my vintage roses are starting to bloom along with the daffodils, iris and alstroemerias. The clematis are sending out tendrils and I can see tips of Oriental lilies just breaking through the soil.

The little weeping cherry tree your can see here, a baby at two years, is just setting blooms and the trees in the crab apple allée are covered with buds. Even though we haven't as yet gotten the full force of El Nino the rain we have gotten has made a difference.
It is days like this that make gardening worth all of the work, bother, and frustration. And, hopefully more rain will come. Keep your fingers crossed!
Thank you for visiting.
I hope that you day started out as lovely as mine.
