Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

At last, I can believe Spring is here

Japanese Maple unfurling it's leaves.

Potted fern showing off it's pretty fronds.

The "can't kill it" rose.
I thought I had dug all of this rose out and moved it elsewhere, obviously I missed some of it and it is growing more vigorously than ever. Well, I will give it a trellis to climb, and leave it there, as it seems so determined.

Hellebores, primroses, grape hyacinths, ferns, daffodils, a toad lily, astillbe, and a couple of other plants share this small garden spot.

Tulips almost ready to explode into a riot of color.

Every day, when I go and look at the front garden, I notice another plant pushing up out of the soil. Very soon the whole area will be filled with all kinds of plants ready to send forth pretty flowers or interesting foliage.

Love the effort of your 'Can't Kill It' Rose. It's a determined little thing. You do have some lovely signs of Spring in your garden now. That's great to see.
