Spring morning

Perched high in the Hawthorne trees, a chorus of birds joyfully serenaded me as I wandered the garden this morning. The garden changes daily this time of year, and the early morning ramble soothes my restless mind. 
The hybrid bleeding hearts have thrown their blossoms in the past few days. I've been impatiently waiting; a short cold snap delayed them a bit. Our native bleeding hearts must be shy. I can't seem to get a good photo of their pale pink blooms to share. 
Grape hyacinths are in full bloom this week, poking up everywhere. I transplanted some last year when we were moving a garden, and it's fun to see just where I put the bulbs. Some are coming up in places I'm sure I did not plant. Perhaps the mole who visited us last year helped a bit with their relocation. *wink*  This little clump seems happy under the lavender bushes with a little white stone bunny as a companion. Bunny may move as the season progresses, though for now, he's quite content. 

Sharing today with Guest Heart Thursday, and

The bleeding heart makes such a beautiful punch of color. And I love Bunny, nestled there among little plant friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed wandering through your garden with you this morning. This winter has done a number of nature this year. Nothing seems to be when we expect. Hummingbird feeder up but no hummers seen yet. We usually see them by April 15. Blessings

My bleeding heart is just barely starting to bud out - I can hardly wait until it's as beautiful as yours!

Your words took me outside into your garden ... it seems to be a beautiful and peaceful place ... thank you for the tour!

P.S. LOVE the bunny!!!
