One look at these early spring Forsythia blossoms and we can be certain there's no turning back the weather clock now. That being said, April is a mix of weather along the South Coast of Massachusetts. One day it will be warm and clear and the next we'll be in mist and cooler temps. I feel like a chameleon this time of year. My mood tends to match the weather. If it's warm and sunny, there's no stopping me! Cool and cloudy days make me feel fuzzy headed and unsure of what to tackle next. Today, we are under dark clouds, pouring rain and rumbling skies. The air outside is electrifying, charging the plants with the energy they need to grow! I swear I can see the grass turning greener with each passing hour. While the storm carries on, I'll share some early Spring Garden snippets!
The crocus were covered in a dusting of snow on the first day of spring, but that didn't stop them from making a show stopping appearance of bright purple blossoms a week later. I'm happy to see the Hollyhock's made it along with the Autumn Sedum Joy. The Bird and Butterfly Garden is waking up from it's long winters nap too but no photos this time as there is nothing noteworthy to see just yet.
