Spring Has Sprung - III - April 30, 2007

One of the ferns begins to bud An ostrich fern is starting to send fronds out. There are 30 of them in the back flower bed - its a wonderful display.

My Minature Tulips My miniature Turkish tulips did survive!!!!

The small centre bed

A touch of pink amongst the green from the very fragrant hyacinths.

A trillium begins to bloom

When I was a kid - back in the forest primeval - they told us it was illegal to take trillium from the wild and transplant them in a garden. Something about it being the Provincial Flower in Ontario - but hey we live in Québec

The bed by the fence

A friend who immigrated from Egypt was overwhelmed by the shades of green when he first came to this country.

This is probably the last garden I will ever own; I am finding that realization hard to process.

oh NO!!!! the last???? what a tragedy. this is so beautiful. i've never planted turkish tulips, always wanted to. wanted trillium as well. the greens are magnificent. at times in the spring i think i don't even need the flowers. all of that tender green and such variation in the shades. beautiful and fresh and clean. it's enchanting, as is your garden. how lovely.
