Yesterday I had to take some time out of my regular busy-ness and just take in spring. The lighting was perfect, flat and subdued as the sun was filtered through the clouds that remained from our early morning rain.
Yesterday's photos were a result, and since I couldn't stop snapping, here are some more:
My neighbor's rhody:
The magnolia tree down the street from me.
The ground was littered with the spent white blooms-so much prettier than snow.
Views from a local rock garden:
Snow on the mountain, spreading like, well, snow on a mountain!
The golden shrubs on the shady side of the house:
The wild ginger is just about ready to unfold sturdy leaves-peaking through last year's bark:
And for the life of me I can't remember what this is, a form of Jacob's ladder? No matter, love the color.
Take some time this weekend to enjoy a little section of your own backyard, or visit a garden shop for some new color!
