Spring really has unfurled in Florida. Actually it has looked spring-like for awhile now. Our trees leafed out long ago, starting with those bright, light green leaves and other things have followed right along. My garden escaped without any frost/freeze damage - always so thankful for that. This post is loaded down with pictures. It's so hard to hold back when I have so many. I am not going to say much more. In fact, this could almost qualify for a Wordless Wednesday post.
It is less than two weeks away from Spring officially arriving. My blue-eyed grass has been blooming for about three weeks. The little yellow sprig is bulbine.
The blossoms are so tiny but I love them.
A lot of unfurling (literally) has been going on in the thickets of ferns.
These are wild, woods ferns that come up in my yard where they don't have a snowball's chance of looking good through the summer.
It's neat how the leaves are born.
This is in the center of my smallest bird's nest fern. A different-looking unfurling.
And, the giant Macho ferns.
These plants are getting about as tall as I am. And, have spread into big areas. I enjoy the back shady yard more with them here.
Oh how I wish I could claim this picture but, no, it is a borrowed one. I seldom use other people's photos and will always tell you when I do. Isn't he the cutest!!!
I actually have a lot of plants blooming but will save most of those for other posts since you see them most of the year. This is larkspur.
I am so glad to see Wendy's Wish blooming again. This is what the hummingbirds like most in my yard.
A patch of Crocosmia. I have patches of these several places in the backyard. Like the Blue-eyed Grass they are tiny but make a big statement.
I just finished trimming the rose bushes back but several kinds are already blooming.
I rarely get a picture of Peggy Martin without having a bit of purple Tibouchina peeping in. This is the rose that develops into big clusters.
LESS THAN TWO WEEKS TO GO!
I ended up saying more than planned but I did eliminate a few pictures.
