Saturday Survey I: Week 1
I love looking at pictures of my garden. Not necessarily because they can be pretty, but because I find that the photo gives me a perspective that I don't get with the naked eye. Somehow, it highlights things I would have missed otherwise. So, given how informative my old time series was, I'm starting again this year in my newly installed Bird & Butterfly garden.
You can see that I took my lesson from the old series, and in this border I've chosen a golden bamboo in a half-barrel instead of the maiden grass I used before. We'll see if it's a better choice.
Clearly the garden is a mess, and there's still some construction going on, but for today I was mostly interested in seeing what survived our unusual snowfall. And not only did I find new growth on several perennials, but I also found these: the tips of daffodils! Spring is coming! I'm so happy.
I'll post another photo in this series next Saturday. And feel free to join in if you want to!
