Monday 8 | A Year of Mondays Project

Three days of incessant rain, wind and gloom.  This morning in the garden there were the usual early spring suspects – a bumper crop of wild onions that need prompt removal, nubs of sedums pushing through the soggy ground, and the scent of blooming Viburnum bodnantense ‘Dawn’.  What surprised and delighted me most was on my way out of the garden.  There it was, something that I’d walked past on my way through the iron arbor in search of whatever today would reveal–a sure sign that spring was here–the tender new growth on a Spiraea thunbergii ‘Mt. Fuji’.  Soon it will burst into glorious white bloom.

  1. Do you have hellebores? My earliest “niger” are blooming, but my spireas are still dormant. As soon as we get sun again I expect to see a garden explosion!

  2. I went out today, no snow, but nothing is blooming yet. Daffodils are coming up with some early ones just about to open.

    Careful observation is a by product of gardening!
