the Garden in early spring

Luckily, this picture shows what Rocky Dale looks like in the depth of winter- beautiful- but enough of the snow now- we want spring…

and this is what it’s looking like now.

 

snowdrops

One of the early signs of spring is the snowdrops that cover the grounds at Rocky Dale.  They’re just starting to open up now, even though some parts of the garden still have a foot of snow left on them.

 

hamamelis

The Hamamelis are starting to bud up too.  They should be in full flower within a week or two.
