Spring Blooms

After a few months of taking pictures of snow, frost, snowflakes, snowbanks, ice and generally frozen conditions, it is very nice to start to add a few more colours to the palate. While it is not yet the full onset of spring colours, I was very happy to see some plants in bloom when I was at the Historic Gardens' winter farmers' market this morning. We had a few minutes to stroll into the Gardens before the rain started and I was happy to see both witch hazel and snowdrops in bloom. While the individual blooms are small, the yellow and red of the witch hazel almost stood out like a beacon on the landscape. If you are feeling the need for some early spring colour, it is worth a trip to visit our friends at the Historic Gardens.

All for now,
RGS
