April frost

I’m planning to offer you more of my recent treasures from New Zealand, but this morning there was a frost, so I’ll bring you something fresher.  I’d hoped to do some work with the crocuses, since three of them have blossomed, but all of them have withered and faded.  More are shooting up, however, and they will certainly be the subject of another post very soon.  Some of our Pushkin snowdrops have opened, but it’s quite windy this morning and they won’t hold still long enough to make a sharp shot.  But their time will come, too.  Meanwhile, though the daffodils will not be ready to blossom for some time, their leaves are looking very healthy as they push their way up through last year’s maple and coral-bell leaves.  I also managed to catch some of the frost on the new leaves of our naked ladies before the rising sun melted it.  Their blossoms won’t appear until July.

    You’re probably really relishing these signs of Spring, Gary.
    It’s been a long winter for many.
    Lovely images.

    The whole northern hemisphere is waking up. Here in the UK our snowdrops have been and gone, bluebells are flowering, and my fruit trees are blossoming, with the promise of lots of juicy plums to come later in the year.
