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.
