Signs of life


Things come alive in fits and starts once the days get longer. My evergreen clematis is making signs of flower for the first time.

Garlic is the first edible to show itself, in time with other bulbing plants which foreshadow the true spring weather.

Blueberry growth like arrows pointing upwards to new life after a winter of sleep.

And the rhizome of rhubarb births new leaves, drinking water from the sky to replenish its roots towards a new year.
