Garden journal entry


March 27, 2007. Early spring. The weather is full of promise, but the garden still looks lifeless from a distance - the grass is greening up, but the flower beds are brown and gray. Until you look up close, that is. Buds and tiny leaves are pushing up on some plants, often in brighter colors than the summer foliage will be. The one pictured here is Alchemilla bulgarica, a dwarf lady's mantle. It's been in our garden for a couple of years without making much of a statement, but seeing the bright silvery-green leaves on my treasure hunt through the garden today made up for its low profile.
