I finally got around to unloading the memory card from the pocket cam and gosh, were there ever a lot of garden shots on it. Hey, Spring is happening, which means these pages will be flower-infested for some weeks now. If you like flowers at all, you’ll probably agree that the little Ricoh has a gift for ’em.
To start with, a few Grape Hyacinths.
Attached to the north side of our house, where the sun never comes, is a little extra room with a nice porch on top. We refer to it as the mud-room or the wine-cellar, depending. It’s built out of cinder-blocks and ain’t very pretty. So we painted it green and then went looking for a vigorous climber that doesn’t need much light. This is what we found: a Climbing Hydrangea; vigorous and much more attractive than cinder-blocks.
Don’t know what this was, but I snuck up on it when the sun was on the other side.
Now a couple of shots of the magnolia, which appears regularly in this space.
It has been suggested to me that the buds of magnolia blossoms are somehow sexually suggestive.

Tsk! That's all some people think about: flowers!
(er... what are flowers, anyway?)

Nice flowers, Tim! Early spring... Our siberian climate varies dramatically. Yesterday the temperature was +21C, but it is -10C now. Hopefully I'll see blooming plants on the street in 3-4 weeks...
