Bits of green!

High 44 F

Finally one of the snowdrops unfurled its' tiny petals to reveal the little green chevron etched on the inner petiole. I could not detect any fragrance from it today. Temperatures were still a bit chilly. Cool temperatures do keep the flowers from aging but with so few flowers around I would rather there be just a bit more warmth. Green is hiding but is there if you look closely. This is one of the volunteer poppies coming up on the edge of the patio. The chives are also coming up. I like them in scrambled eggs for the first fresh taste of spring green. This, I believe, is the emerging foliage of one of the campanula. So much color in such little leaves!
The east border receives quite a bit of sun this time of year. When the sun is shining, that is.
The bleeding hearts' fern like foliage is visible and the accordion pleated leaves of the lady's mantle
are starting to play their song. The green is there, it just takes a bit more time to find it.
