Indications of Spring

In amongst the irises is a wild fern which got transplanted along with these tubers. It manages to stay happy in the bright sun. It's a sturdy type, with only a few fronds, 6-8 each year. But I love that it lives here. We have many more in the forest, but I would have to hike to see them.
The first bleeding hear, upside down, and caught on a branching stem. We have a bunch of reseeded dicentra, in pink and white.
As well as a great profusion of  reseeding celandine poppies. Even after the blooms have passed, the foliage is lovely.
I continue to love hosta, and am very careful to leave a stem from last year's blossoms as a marker, so I don't walk on the new tips. This one looks ready to be divided. I can see four new plants from this one. I just use a bread saw and cut right through the clump. Better to do it before it leafs out, as the leaves will disguise the division.

This is a double red Knockout rose which I transplanted yesterday from the front deck planter, where I never should have put it originally. I am trying to be wiser this year and leave plenty of space around specimens, since they get bigger every year. Also pictured are lots of larkspur and daylilies.
Our back garden is kidney shaped and the opposite side got this yellow Julia Child rose, also transplanted from the front bed. Here it will have space and sun and can be observed properly. It was crowded behind another Knockout rose in the front bed.
With the iris, I transplanted dozens of Asian Lilies, from beds and flowerpots where they were growing last year. We have many smaller offshoots, so this is a nursery too.
This bed had been overtaken by phlox and I hope I got every one of them dug out and into the compost pile, where I am sure they will live on. Sturdy buggers!


It's spawning season in the pond and the goldies are at it like maniacs. They flop around and chase each other and surely must be exhausted when it is all over. One obvious female was being rushed by several tinier males, continually all day. I hope she drops her eggs before she collapses.
We are expecting/hoping for rain today, thankfully, and I am taking a day off of digging. Phew!

    How lovely to see signs of spring at your home! We are still covered with feet of snow. Just a wee warning- larkspur can go feral and become a bad weed up here in Manitoba. So keep your eye on the larkspur in your beds because they are very persistent.
    You did a magnificent job of the blue quilt. I found it interesting that you restricted it to two colours, and kept it really exciting and fresh.

    I enjoy the change of seasons in your blog and your spring focus on the garden.

    Here in Minnesota we're getting a late season storm of 4-8 inches of snow, I can hear the snowplows outside now.

    Your photos remind me that even though it looks like January outside, in three weeks we should have some version of spring.

  5. Autumn here too! Actually I think we are blessed to experience four distinct seasons...and I relish every one of them. Spring is my favourite I think. The light seems so true and the fresh growth is a unique shade of green. We have had an awesome summer and it is a bit of a shock to experience the cooler temperatures. Even the cats' habits have changed. Aren't they the best heat seekers?

    A wonderful thing about shopping on e - Bay is that the bidding price may begin from just $00.
    Sellers who concentrate on what e - Bay and customers want
    will succeed, sellers who fear being victimized by customers or
    who focus on how e - Bay policies might inconvenience
    them won't succeed. Ebay began being a area for individuals to easily sell their collectibles and also other stuff for the house online.

    is that the arthritis in his back seems a lot better.
    Most weight loss patches now available are actually a
    blend of five key active ingredients which include (a) hoodia - an hunger
    suppressant; (b) Chromium - for lowering appetite and
    managing blood sugar levels; (c) 5-HTP - a neurotransmitter that improves mood and in addition boost metabolic processes; (d) Guarana - a
    metabolism-boosting stimulant; and (e) Garcinia Cambogia - inhibits the absorption of carbohydrate-containing
    foods. The safe and successful clinical trials have prompted doctors to recommend Vitoslim as a
