On the Comeback Trail

I’m developing a crick in my neck. It’s from constantly looking down. I peer into winter sowing containers.

I check the progress of my bulbs.

Oh, look. Another bunch of daffs are blooming.

I look for perennials coming back to life after a long winter’s sleep.

Good. Both heucheras are coming up.

How exciting! The Candelabra primrose I bought at Well Sweep Herb Farm last year is coming up again. I hope it blooms this year.

And I continue to marvel at the display that my hellebores are putting on after years of no flowers.

Lucky you to have daffs and hellebores! My daffs are a way off yet. Still waiting for crocuses.
My hellebore looks sad. I hope it's still alive.

Thanks, Lisa!

Kerry, I'm sure that your hellebores are still alive. They like the cold weather.
