I have not missed the spring excitement but have been hard at work on my little plot. The cherry and plum trees have passed from white mist to leaf. In my garden wild irises and tulips have been blooming as well as three kinds of lemon yellow weeds that are showing gloriously with the violet wild irises. Now the Jasmine and specialty irises are about to surprise us with their scented offerings.
Three of the maples are in tender yellow gold leaf and the other two in burgundy foliage. With the warm weather in Nice, we have begun to water the garden again to keep the thirsty pom pom bushes going.
There are riches to breathe in everywhere.
I downloaded these photos from my sister- in- law Leo's potted tulips years ago. She lives in Oregon with my middle brother and keeps a splendid garden, indoors and out. If you don't have a garden, it's time to stop by and buy yourself a blossom or two. You can't not.
