Springing to Life

Have you noticed, it will be bleak and barren one day and the next day there are vibrant signs of life?  Take this camellia for example....


Just a few days ago, this was a tight bud.  I think it exploded into full bloom overnight.


The smallest daffodils are opening, too.


This is the first muscari to peak it's head up out of the ground.  I love these little grape hyacinths.  Sometimes it's tiniest flower that pack the biggest punch.


Even this fuchsia is in bud which is a really bad idea.  I suppose it's tired of the grim weather, too.  


The flowers aren't the only things that have leaped into action.  The weeds are coming on strong, too.  I suppose with the first flowers of spring comes the first weeding of the borders.

    1. It's lovely to have a few bright spots in the garden after this very gloomy weather.

  2. Beautiful photography! You are so lucky to have flowers already in bloom. The only thing I have romping away is the grass that is about a foot tall! It is nice to have these intermittent signs of spring amongst the gloomy days though isn't it?

    1. I also seem to have a good crop of weeds coming on leaps and bounds. : ) These little blossoms give us hope for a better Spring.
