    Your garden is of course, glowing,
    and growing.
    “Mary, Mary, quite contrary
    How does your garden grow?
    With silver bells and cockleshells
    And pretty maids all in a row.”

    Such a beautiful photo. I love scilla. They are the sparkliest blue in the garden.

  7. naturebackin says:

    Lovely plant and photo. It conveys how the plant pushed up through the soil in celebration of spring. Enjoy all the new growth and longer days!

  8. Anne says:

    I too am looking forward to your spring garden unfolding – this is a good foretaste of it.

    Nature’s little miracles!

  14. That beauty worked hard to break through the frost, cold soil, leaves, and bring such wonder to the world. My daffodils are probably 1″ tall right now. Slow, slow spring.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      A very slow spring, but a lot like the springs of my youth when we had snow in the yard until mid-April and snow in the shady woods on Memorial Day. That hasn’t happened in years!

  15. Oh the COLOR!! This is gorgeous, Eliza! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Magical is the world of flowers, especially when they provide beautiful skirts for Fairies ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ First Daffodil bloomed, yesterday….and I was so excited to see Pussy Willows just starting to peek out, on a Weeping Pussy Willow, from my son, which came with Pussys & had them the next year & then not for 3 years. Super Phosphate was recommended at the nursery. Our two new Bee hives, who have been here five days, were so happy with the warmer weather.

  17. Christina says:

    Spring is arriving, even with you!

  18. Kathy Sturr says:

    Just love that blue! Happy Spring to you!

  19. So glad spring is coming your way. It is so hard to wait for it, but what sweet pleasures it brings.

  20. Spring is springing forth! Lovely shade of blue, Eliza!

  21. Kris P says:

    Such fabulous plants. Which species of Scilla is it? Thus far, the only species I’ve been able to grow here is Scilla peruviana.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Scilla siberica. With a name like that, I expect it likes it cold. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yet S. peruviana is a mega-sized version and is so lovely to look upon.

  22. A welcome sight! Nothing much in bloom in central Maine yet. At least not that I have seen.

  23. Amittras Pal says:

    That is a pretty picture, I’d want to know what you used to click that pic….. The camera set-up I mean!
