My trees definitely tell me that Spring is here. The Eucalyptus tree had a haircut in the winter, the leaves slowly start to come back. the rose bud next to the tree shows her spring pink cheeks. The maple tree is busy branching out and burst out the tender young green leaves. The orange tree is doing super well after the winter rain. It produced several hundreds of second crop of juicy Valencia oranges.

Hi, I’m Garden Frog! Welcome to My Garden! It IS Easy Being Green! I’m always green, but the garden… we’ll wait and see in the summer!
Please see poem below, by Mick E Talbot in responding to photos of this post!
There are some early blooms in my garden. But most of the flowers are still waiting for more sun to bring out their splendid colors. After a couple months of heavy rain in the winter, my garden and yard are still in eye soothing green.
The iceberg roses and pink roses still have the green buds.
Both the jade plant and the rosemary are going crazy. They are almost overgrown.
The lavender has one strand of purple flowers ready to bloom. The mixed plants flower bed has no signs of flowers yet!
As far as the Date Palms. They are almost reaching to the sky!
Weekly Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green!
Haiku, senryu comment.
If truth be known
it breaths for us
we breath for it
now surplus well nearly
hence all the fuss
we wouldn’t survive one gasp
important is green
keeping the air clean
the way it was still should be
like your greens all do
dependant on you
your nurturing loving care
thanks for the fresh air
Amazing photos, a beautiful garden of Miriam Hurdle.

Taking a walk in my garden.
Many flowers bloom in summer.
In this cold winter,
Expect no other colors but green,
Eucalyptus, Date palms, hibiscus.
To my surprise, there were both
Bright and soft colors
in the rose bushes.
Rose buds were waiting to
unfold their inner beauty.
Showing winter cheers.
