It has been ages since I joined in on A Southern Daydreamer’s Outside Wednesday Meme but low and behold I was finally able to spend some time outside yesterday. The sun was shining and the temps got up over 40 degrees. I had a good time walking about the yard and noticing what was budding or blooming.
The first thing I noticed was that my shrubs next to my Hellebore (Lenten Rose) were growing over it.
I headed to the garage to get my nifty trimmers and set out to free the top of the Hellebore from the shrub next to it.
This is always the first sign that Spring is coming in my yard. I love how gentle and humble this pretty plant is.
After I freed and enjoyed my Lenten Rose I moved over to the Camelia Bushes to take a photo of the buds on them.
Hydrangeas are shooting out their buds, too.
I’m really excited about these buds which are only two of many on my lilac bush. Last year I only had one bloom so it looks as if I’ll have more than one bloom this year.
Have you been able to be outside this week or are you still covered in a blanket of snow? I suppose if snow is your general landscape in the winter you know how to go out and about in it and enjoy it to the fullest, too. Looking forward to see if I can catch up with some old bloggy friends that I haven’t visited for a while. What’s new in your outdoors?
