Spring is finally here!!!

Spring is slow to come here in Massachusetts. After living in DC, where it's in the 60s and 70s by February at times, it feels like spring will never get to Gloucester! But we had a gorgeous weekend and the flowers are blooming. Kurt and I spent most of the weekend working in the garden at home, and in our community garden plot, and had a blast. Here are a few pictures of our new blooms.

This one is a passionflower. I watered this plant all winter, but thought for sure I was watering a dead plant. But not only did we have one flower on the plant this weekend, we had two! Aren't they beautiful???

We have a couple hyacinth coming up in the garden, along with tulips and a bush that's full of these little white bells. Anyone know what they're called?

Isn't that the most beautiful purply blue you've ever seen? Only nature can make something that breathtaking!
