The light is clear and bright today and the air is much better. It almost feels as if the pollen has been washed from the sky. Got out for an early 2fer breakfast with coupon at the Sunnyside Grill, so I was a bit late getting out into the garden for my morning shots. Too bad these point and shoot cameras don't have lenses like my sunglasses do.
This bee is doing in the Dicentra ochroleuca what I should be doing post egg/bacon/toast (and yes, very yummy potato) breakfast - situps. Or would that be Bee-lates?
I know, I know - I've heard the warnings about Euphorbia 'Fens Ruby' being weedy, but refuse to take heed because there isn't anything else I've found that has such a fine delicate leaf and flower form. The happy yellow dots of the flowers will keep this section bright until the Doronicum on the left starts to bloom.
This is the flower that signals spring to me - Mertensia virginica. It's one of the first perennials I planted in my yard many years ago.
Over to the veggie bed - anyone ever tried Tatsoi? Looks like I'm going to have lots and lots.
Not the best 'water on the Achemilla mollis leaves' shot. But one of my better shots of the a.m. so here it is.
Can you imagine what we'd look like if our eyes were as big as this in relation to our bodies. This is the Hydrangea I grew from seed. Found the other four plants languishing under hosta leaves - I've moved them and at least one is starting to look more like a woody plant rather than a stick in the ground.
