Welcome To Spring In Atlanta

It’s officially Spring! Well, at least on the calendar…. Hope you enjoy these first signs of life from our patio garden.

Seems funny that this will soon be a full-blown hosta, shooting up stately green and white leaves, then tall stalks with dainty flowers for us (and the bees!) to enjoy.

I’m always intrigued that the hydrangea starts out so brown and dull, then little buds start to appear – soon to become a showcase of blooms.

Just where do the bees go all winter? They are always the best part of the “flower show” as they get pollen drunk with the available abundance that will soon appear. Happy First day of Spring!

  1. Most everything here is still under banks of snow but I can’t wait to see some shoots. You’ve reminded me though that I never did clip back my hydrangea. As for the bees – I’m not sure where they go but I’ve got one major hornet’s nest in a corner of the house that has to get knocked down before it warms up.
