Hello Spring!

"Hello Spring" - this week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue



Well, there still is not much of spring over here, so it doesn't look like in this photo at all. I took this picture exactly a year ago and at that time my little garden was just beautiful. When I look outside now I see a lot of green, but the only other color I see is the orange of the calendula (they are so reliable) and some early tulips as well as the blossoms on the pear tree and a few shy ones on the cherry tree. It certainly is a much slower start than last year. The good thing is that I don't have to water which is always a blessing - nature is providing for that (I have a low-water garden anyway).

Just to give you an idea what it looked like a year ago:


It isn't almost close to that this year. I look forward to sunnier and warmer days and all the color in my yard.

I wish our wisteria grew like that- here in Georgia, it's more like an uncontrollable weed! But it IS pretty!
And those poppies are glorious! Thanks for sharing your wonderful garden!

What a beautiful garden. Isn't it amazing how gardens can differ one year to the next?
