If there was ever a season for miracles, it’s spring. Buds bursting forth into beautiful blossoms, bulbs revealing the fireworks they’ve been hiding away underground all winter. Shoots and buds and blooms, oh my!
Time to salute the vanguards of spring like trillium and crocus and bleeding heart. Dutchman’s Breeches (or britches, as we say in our neck of the woods) are a particular favorite, their beauty hiding their tough and sturdy nature.
These brave plants shoulder the burden of cold and frosty nights to be rewarded by the gentle spring sun and the promise of summer.
Are you spotting the miracles of spring in your neighborhood? What are your favorites?
