Spring is my favorite season to spend in the garden. Every day this last week I’ve spent time removing dead foliage, weeding or just taking pictures of spring blossoms. The first fava beans and peas have started to push up through the soil; I took the picture above several days ago and by today more sprouts started to appear.
This seems to be the season of small blue things (SBT). The chartreuse hellebores are in full bloom, contrasting nicely with the SBTs. There are a lot of different SBTs in this small area: periwinkle, anemones, violets and grape hyacinths as well as patches of other blue things in the grass and in Vladimir’s spring garden. I’ve also included some of the first trilliums that have appeared.
