Spring is here

On May Day the weather was warm and the sun was shining. I took some pictures in the yard to show how far we are with the spring right now. This is moss blooming, about 1" high:


Pussy willows high up in the tree


Birch tops are showing a slight green shade, the leaves are not open yet.

Scilla sibirica, a garden plant which spreads easily from the seeds and has little bulbs.


First daffodils opened yesterday


We are waiting for a rain to make the nature green. Happy May everyone!

  1. Exciting discovery.. your Siberian Squill is in the same family as our Spring Beauties. :-D

    I think your climate is about two weeks behind us, because we can feel safe planting after May 15th.

    Everything is starting to look so bright and warmer there! I love pussy willows.. we don't have any.
