I have the door open while I'm writing this. It's sunny out and warm enough to let the fresh air into the house. So beautiful and scented with the early spring flowers' fragrances. Spring is apon us and everyday the garden seems to be doubling in size. Literally from one day to the next, plants are budding and then leafing out before our eyes.
The predominant colors of the garden today are burgundy, chartruese and dark green, with a few splashes of purple from the violets and yellow from the daffodils and primroses.
Most people talk about spring in terms of the flowers and color spots, but I always think of it as the colors of euphorbia's, hellabores, the barberry starting to leaf. Burgundy, chartruese and dark green are the colors of spring for me.
