I revel in the fresh newness of spring. Flawless, glowing leaves uncurl, offering dewy sheen to face their first day. Tubes of hosta unroll in green, green, green. Evergreens are fringed with new growth in lime. Ferns arch to frothy plumes from their fiddlehead beginnings. The new purple of diablo ninebark and palace purple coral bells glistens in the sun. Just opened maple leaves are soft and fragile. Many leaves have detailed veining in their first few days, like the pagoda dogwood below with ripe red detail. Lushness is filling in the garden.
