It has become such a short season here.
A short blip between winter cold and summer heat.
And it is invaded on both ends by unseasonable frosts and
heat waves – I find I must seek it out whilst it is
here to be found.
Hydrangea Blossoms- (I cheated and bought these at a greenhouse!)
Cowslips ( primrose) growing at the side of my front walk.
Dandelions littering the yard with bright yellow.
A very healthy clump of chives in my vegetable bed.
Coral bells lifting her stalk- promising a future silent chorus.
Daffodils still in nightdresses – getting ready for their unveiling, soon!
Flowering Quince- not much good for fruit- but lovely early flowers.
And of course the lovely violet, humble and sweet, growing amongst the grasses.
Lamb’s ears- so soft and fuzzy…
And a Japanese plum- the leaves are a soft red- the flowers will be almost white.
Spring in NE Ohio- Here for only a short time- so I’m trying not to miss the show!
