Signs of Spring – January 6th 2013

6 01 2013

Today the witch hazel is in full bloom and the hazel catkins are glowing.  I even found a tiny, exquisite violet flowing in the gravel.  I love how the garden changes every day.  Today, I’ve spent a few hours pottering around, raking leaves off the gravel and cutting back dead foliage so that the bulbs and the hellebores can be seen.

I love this bird in every season and today, the first day of 2013, the sun shone on him!
