Early April Color

At mid-afternoon and mid-week, it is a sunny 54°F. There is a freeze-watch for tonight, but the plants in the garden seem emboldened by the moderating temperatures of the past few days. In these first days of April spring is inching forward, bringing deep, rich color.

    At last, spring is on its way, it will start with us at the weekend. We hope the forecast is correct, as we have all been waiting a long time for it to start! Your flowers look as though they have been enjoying your sunshine, hope they survive your frost!

    Color is popping out all over my garden, too. Such a relief. I don’t know if it’s all psychological or not, but colors seem more intense to me at this time of year than at any other time. I love spring!

      Isn’t spring wonderful? I used to equate spring with pastel colors but, as you say, there is a lot of intensity this time of year. susie
