Spring flowers

The last few evenings have been pleasant in the garden; many of the early perennial stalwarts are in full flower (Spanish lavender, Coreopsis 'Nana', garden sage, and Amsonia) along with some lovely natives like fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus).

My gardening companion is off taking photos up in the natural gardens of Great Smoky Mountain National Park, so I'm devoting some extra puttering around time to checking on plants and noticing what's changed.

The soft calls and murmurs of birds, some young, some nesting and some courting, adds to the ambience.

An unplanned trio of purple -- red cabbage leaves, sage, and spanish lavender make a nice vignette.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
