As I sit writing my post on Saturday afternoon the wind is howling like a banshee and snowflakes are furiously swirling about as they head downward to cover the ground again.
My favourite weigela 'Ghost' in summer that was a Proven Winners trial shrub a few years ago. The name 'Ghost' comes from the faded greenish-yellow leaves.
'Ghost' as it appears now, chewed back to less than half its size by the resident rabbits. On the right, how my shrub looks after being processed.
Things once alive and colourful but still beautiful as seen by the winter parchment of hydrangea 'Limelight' with the sun shining in the background on the fence.
It really is spring though and do you want to know how I know?
The robins are back! They arrived as the first harbinger of spring in my garden and I'm glad there are still dwarf crabapples (even if shrivelled) left for them to eat.
I can hardly wait for sprouts to start popping out of the soil as it warms and provide some much needed spring colour. To the blogging sisters out east who are still buried under four feet of snow, I hope you see some signs of spring soon. ♥
