...it has a life about it.
The garden is at that point where signs of the approaching end of winter are everywhere.
Signs like chives and hyacinthoides hispanica (spanish bluebells) growing at an almost visible rate, fruit tree flower buds showing color as they swell, rose leaves bursting out along the canes of the climbers.
That is all one can think when walking through the garden and seeing new growth where just days before there looked to be nothing. New growth barely emerging from the recently dormant echinacea,
tender leaves at the base of the agastache,
and wisteria buds all point to the life that has the will to grow and grow.
It's waiting for the right time, and that time is almost here!
