Happy Spring! Officially at 5:24 PM Eastern time today. I love seeing the green mosses and the various things popping up in your beds. One of my fave quotes, by Hal Borland, "no winter lasts forever, no spring skips its turn". Being new to your blog, I'm looking forward to seeing your gardens advance through the seasons.

GINNY — ​Thanks for that great Hal Borland quote. I haven't thought of him in ages. ​The library at the newspaper where I worked had one of his books. I remember always grabbing it for ideas and inspiration.


I bet just being to see the ground and plants make you feel lighter.
Comparing this year's snow timing to last, it appears you are on similar track.
Although the Hellebore didn't advance much, they are just waiting for the opportunity, which is coming just as Spring moved in. I can't wait to see them bloom.

I was up in Spokane visiting family over the weekend and saw scenes very much like these. While I was away Portland finally had a 60 degree day, ending the longest-ever stretch without one (Nov 5-March 15). I am so ready for spring!

It's hard but encouraging that there are so many bare areas. Better a consistent lingering winter than one that disappears only to reappear when all the plants have taken off their winter jackets and get burned.

I think of spring's arrival as a process rather than an event. Your spring just starts a little later and reveals itself somewhat more slowly but it's no less wonderful. It may even make each new discovery all that more special. In contrast, spring here is more like a wallop on the head ;)
