GREEN? LEAVES!

If any of you are looking at your gardens and see the daffodils, tulips and other Spring flowers fading you may be thinking "HURRY UP SUMMER.....we want some more flowers...everything is just green leaves". Well you're wrong...look closer...hands and knees if you can manage it. Now look closely at those green leaves......now you see it don't you! The variations in colour, texture,shape and size.......absolutely breathtaking........... And just in case you live somewhere that is still covered with snow.........here is a collage of leaves from our garden today.

Actually we have, as you know, quite a few flowers out in our garden. I'll do a post later showing you the latest garden news....but for now I must have something to eat....I've been in the garden since 7am and all that fresh air has left me famished!

It rained on and off here; you could almost hear the garden sucking it all up!!

I love that mosaic of leaves. Such variety, what a lovely example of Nature's rich abundance. It is all so green as well. In Australia you often get a different kind of green - like a grey-green, at least in dry, native gardens. I like reading about your rain.
