Spring is Sprung in Maine!

We had a break in the rain yesterday afternoon long enough for me to get a few shots of our beautiful new spring plants in the garden. I've always wanted to get a nice shot of my bleeding heart plant. Jon said the one in sole focus (above) looks sort of like Wendy, the Wendy's fast food chain girl with red hair in braids!
Lady's Mantle with raindrops--one of my favorites in the garden. Very shallow depth of field used here. . .
Catmint--Maya eats this by the handful all season. . .
One of the heirloom tulips Mom gave Maya when she turned one. Maya and I planted them "together," one afternoon--Maya's version of "help" was to get her hands very dirty and scuttle into the street numerous times while I tried to plant the tulips! Cute memories. . .
Wee hostas (above.) I love how tender they look early in the spring, just unfurling. The light was perfect for capturing their delicate green. . .

Thanks for looking! Happy Spring everyone! Cindy
