"I would not change this handful of the spring
For twenty clumps of costly hothouse flowers."
~from The Two Bouquets
At long last, we have a few really spring-like days! It has been heavenly outside the past couple days...a striking contrast to the weather a week ago. I've practically been living outdoors and am already burned to a crisp! The gardens aren't overflowing yet, but there are delightful little patches of color that are so refreshing to eyes that have been looking at endless white for 6 months! 😃 I just love this time of year when there is so much to enjoy and look forward to...and I really would not change my brave little blooms for a bunch of hothouse rareties right now! 😊
An overhead view...I used young Lovage and Wormwood leaves for the foliage.
Chionodoxas are the highlight of this arrangement, as they are in my garden right now! Maybe it's just my imagination, but they seem to be a brighter blue this year.
Most of the Snow Crocuses are finished now, but the Dutch Crocuses have taken over.
Striped Squill is another early spring favorite in my garden although I only have a few...I really should plant more! I love the way it looks against the silvery Wormwood leaves.
The first Daffodil opened today...
Coltsfoot is in bloom everywhere around here now. We even have a tiny patch of it in an out-of-the-way corner of the lawn that I didn't know about before! I know most people consider it an invasive weed, but I welcome its cheery flowers!
I hope you are having a beautiful spring day too! You can see what others have found to fill their vases today at Rambling in the Garden.
