After I set it outside to dry in yesterday's lovely weather,(today is wet, cool and dismally grey), I grabbed my big girl camera with a 50 mm lens and explored the garden. Not much yet, but enough to think that perhaps spring is here.
I want to find more of these for the garden. It's some variety of Scilla, (siberica?). I'd love them to be strewn throughout the gardens and yard. They are exquisitely blue and fresh.
Something has eaten every last strawberry plant and the bunnies got the blueberries, which are showing no signs of recovery yet. I haven't checked the raspberries but at least a few of the blackberries made it through the harsh winter. The black current bush has lots of leaf buds, and I'm hopeful that there might be a few berries to harvest this year. Last year there were 3 currents on the bush, so more would be a good thing.
