Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Goodnight.
---Elizabeth T. Dillingham "A Faery Song"

Pink Lenten Rose?... "here"

Sedum?... "here"

Well, it looks like the early arrivals are here at last.  Let's hear it for the Class of 2011! 


  1. Absolutely stunning photos! So glad I found your blog!

  2. With the exception of the bleeding heart, they are all in attendance in my yard as well. My forsythias are almost in full bloom too!

    I'm so happy spring is here!

    Your background is beautiful!

  3. Thanks Phyllis. Yes, my forsythia is not open enough to take a good pic yet but it's getting there fast!

  4. Looks like a great class to start with!! So glad you are enjoying so many signs of spring!! We are getting some too. .can't wait!!

  5. Great for the beginners. My frsythia has a few blooms but it is a small plant. I almost lost it. I had to trim a lot of dead from it as it got too dry.

  6. Lovely! Beautiful pictures. Makes me long for spring.....

  7. Looks like your spring is coming about the same rate as mine. The garden fairy was given to me by my mother, it used to have a star on top. I guess its kind of a heirloom. Blessings to you. Not sure where she purchased it. I will ask her.
