My garden is coming on quickly. I have nourished the beds with the dark, sweet smelling, natural nutrients that result from my composting efforts. The perennials are pushing their heads up through the soil...already four inches high in some areas. The flowering trees are blooming.....cherry, peach and dogwood. New grass in that brilliant shade of "spring green" that falls somewhere between green and yellow, has replaced the brownish thatch of winter. Daffodils and hellebore are in full flower. All the springtime colors seem to jump right out at you, when viewed against a cloudless, brilliant blue sky. The garden is dressed and ready for her debut.....all she lacks are the beautiful bits of color that punctuate the green background like jewels...........I eagerly await.
I created this mosaic in Photoshop, from photos of my garden in 2008.
