I lied...

... when I said we wouldn't see any green for many more weeks....

I didn't mean to lie. We really shouldn't have. But all the snow we got last week got washed away with some rain over the weekend. I just happened to peak over at the gardens when heading out and...
and....
and...
There's green coming up all over the place. These will be a mix of tulips, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths and lily-of-the-valley. I'm not sure what's what. The only thing I can positively identify it the irises
(and yay! looks like they've multiplied!

The various ground cover sedums I have seem to have wintered well
Though I need to get out and clean the leaves and fall detritus around them. Oh - and the tall sedums Samantha gave me are already coming back too
And just look at this beautiful hens and chick
It's gone a gorgeous deep burgundy. I have some of these in the house and they are still green, just tinged with red.

And look...
Even the dianthans are getting green. They are getting moved this year... I just have to decide on a place for them.

It will still be weeks before we see any blooms.. but this little bit of green has cheered me to no end!

Spring can't be too far off now!

I noticed my African Iris has it's first bud. That means spring is HERE in Florida.

Lovely . Spring is on its way to you. We are expecting a snow with measurable totals on wednesday. I see our snowdrops and nothing else. It is usually well into April before we can say the spring word.
