Signs of Spring.
Yesterday, I checked the perennials I moved to my vegetable garden yesterday. I noticed that some were already budding. And at an afternoon temperature of 17C I could easily move plants.
This is one of the shrubs I moved. It is a High Bush Cranberry that is already budding. If you enlarge this photo by clicking on it, you might also see some budding lily or iris corms I also moved back since these were also greening up.
Another sign of spring is seen in the catkins on the willows. I cut several and have them inside the house in a vase with water.
In an untouched (so far) section of the front garden a few tulips are stuggling through the stonecrop. Spring is here.
