spring at last!







Happy Spring to my northern hemispherical friends! Not much has come up in the garden as of yet but my hellebores are going strong despite getting buried in snow a few weeks ago :) And whatever flowering tree I have there is juuuust about ready to flower. Oh, and the spotty green leaves are my pulmonaria popping up.

I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation, too...do you get that feeling in spring? One day of sunshine and I'm whizzing around doing things in the house and weeding in the garden and kind of all over the place.

I took these pics with my new camera which does not have a handy little screen that I can tilt up towards me when I'm trying to photograph something down at ground level. My old camera was great for this sort of thing (although not the greatest camera). So I tried to point the camera up under the hellebores and click and then look what I got. Not the most efficient method but I got some interesting compositions that way :)
