Over the past few weeks sunny spots of yellow in the form of daffodils, witch hazel, and forsythia have started to spring into action. They are a stark and welcome contrast to the wintery greys and browns that still linger. It's a different palette from the bright red poppies in Sicily and the delicate pinks of Japanese magnolias, but it's just as invigorating and hopeful.
I celebrated the first day of spring by visiting Brookside Gardens. It's been on my to-see list for awhile. Looking forward to returning when more is in bloom.
