The Tuesday View March 21

Just wanted to show why I’m still not posting any spring flower photos. As you can see, it’ll be a while yet.

With a nod to Cathy at Words and Herbs, who hosts a weekly meme of photos taken of the same garden over the course of the growing season to note its evolution.

Below are some of the last year’s views for full circle comparison. It’s interesting to note that last year, spring’s arrival was a lot earlier. There is no way that the garden will look like this in 10 days’ time. We seem to be stuck in a cold and snowy weather pattern this year. Never a dull moment in the nature.

Looking forward to the next growing season!

    I’m looking forward to the revealing Eliza 💛

  2. Alice Pratt says:

    The new growth is just waiting to pop thru! Then: lots of colors! Every day I’m watching the snow gradually eb across the lawn.

  3. Alice Pratt says:

    😕 “ebb”

  4. Christina says:

    I hope your spring does come soon. It must be so hard for you. Do you have somewhere to grow seeds early?

  5. neihtn2012 says:

    Eliza, we still have snow on the ground too. I have all kinds of seeds I want to plant, but can’t. If you see Spring, tell it to come to the East Coast too.

    Your photos from last year are very pleasant to look at.

  6. Jet Eliot says:

    Fantastic series of your beautiful garden, Eliza. The spring may be delayed this year, but these photos prove the natural flow is there.

  7. Inga says:

    Stunning! What wonderful transformations. So inspiring, and exactly the kind of perennial garden I’m aspiring to. Thanks for sharing, Eliza! xo Hugs, Gina~Inga

  8. I am also looking forward to real start of spring and start seeing some flowers popping through but I think it will also be a while here in Montreal as the forecast is for -9C for tomorrow…blooming flowers aren’t in the cards for a while yet. (Suzanne)

  9. Similar view here too 😏 Nice to see what is coming though.

  10. BeeHappee says:

    I love your time-lapse photos!

  11. We’ve got from 1-6ft depending upon where you look. 🙂

  12. dorannrule says:

    When Nature decides to bless us we will love the beauty even more.

  13. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Hard to imagine all the little treasures that are hiding under that blanket of snow:-)

  14. Cathy says:

    It is good to see those photos again Eliza – I will have to take a look back at mine too! My view is still in shade and still looking very brown and boring, but I’ll share a picture as soon as it gets a bit greener! 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Do you have only the one garden or are there others? I was contemplating a different view this time round, but the others tend to have a shorter bloom time. ie, spring shade, June/July, or spring/fall with not much in the middle. My gardens tend to look similar year to year!

      • Cathy says:

        Same here Eliza. There is the top of the rockery – a rather small area – and then there is the south-west rockery too, but that gets dried up and frazzled in summer! I also don’t want too much of the house or fencing spoiling the photo, so I might pick two views for this year and alternate between them… 😉

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Good idea! Or I suppose we could do views while a garden is ‘just before, middle and just after’ peak if its season is short. My shade garden is best in spring, then moves to foliage, which can get boring to feature every week.

      • Cathy says:

        Also a good idea – a spring, summer and autumn view… I’ll be chewing this over during the next few days as we have got a warmish spell forecast for the weekend and I hope to be outside a bit more. 🙂

  15. I can’t wait to see this emerge!!

  16. Widdershins says:

    What a lovely crop of snow! 😀

  17. arlingwoman says:

    It was nice to revisit your garden. I bet it was good for you, too!!

  18. In the meantime Eliza…chop wood, carry water ha! 🙂

  19. Oh dear … worth the wait though!

  20. Kathy Sturr says:

    Oh, bet you’re looking forward to those first spring flowers Eliza! I just posted a new coloring page on my website of spring flowers if you can no longer wait. It is a chilly 12°F in Clayton this morning. I love it here more and more (;

  21. Brian Skeys says:

    Some of that white stuff has come our way, fortunately mainly on the high ground.

  22. What an ever changing rainbow- and so much to look forward to in the months ahead ❤

  23. Bun Karyudo says:

    You’ve got a lot to look forward to! 🙂

  24. Eliza – I love the comparison through the seasons. What an amazing bed, sunflowers and all. What is that gorgeous evergreen tree to the right … hmmm, maybe a blue spruce? A unique and lovely forest backdrop. Here on the west coast of Canada, spring is arriving much later as well. Cheers – Bruce

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Bruce. It is a blue spruce planted by the former owner and forced to compete with other trees, thus its lopsided form. There is a lot of ‘wild’ in my garden. 😉 I appreciate your visit!

  25. It can be a tricky business gardening at this time of year

  26. bittster says:

    Look at all that white. I think the view has improved considerably with the warmer weather, I for one am happy to see that happen! Lets hope for plenty of beautiful sun-filled spring mornings 🙂
