Yesterday was sunny and warm day, +12 C, although snow was still lying in the front garden. I noticed the first signs of coming spring, near a tuja a first daffodil sprouted.
Then I saw thick buds on a black currant bush. These bushes are the first in growing and blooming, giving a nice crop of juicy berries.
Rhododendron's buds wintered well, although I was afraid they could be broken by heavy snow. Looking at these buds it's hard to imagine wonderful flowers in May.
Look at this: the first flower is growing from the snow, wow! This is Leucojum vernum, small brave flower. They grow in different places of the garden, some years ago I divided bulbs and planted them everywhere.
I was upset looking at rose bushes, they were in bad condition, with black stems. But between them there were new crocuses, green and fresh.
Some perennials re-awakened too. Big evergreen Bergenia leaves were seen through the snow, in the vegetable garden some strawberry leaves appeared between snow and the brown soil.
I've showed you just first signs of new spring, hope more warm days come soon. After all Mr Galilei said that our Earth 'yet it moves', doesn't it?!
HAPPY EASTER WEEK!
