Evoke the excitement of entering a new year with a photo that shows growth.
—WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

Nature seems to be upside down again this year. We have a carpet of purple blooms on the Rosemary on our hillside, Roses are starting to bud and Irises are filling our planters.

As colorful as this new growth appears, I hope that it is not one last hurrah before our Climate reverses course.

    That’s a beauty, Allan. I’ll be going to Arizona soon and I’m looking forward not just to the warmth, but to seeing what’s growing and blooming there.

      Thank you, Sally. It is a nice pop of color today as it is overcast with rain in the forecast.

    Oh how I know The Garden thinks it’s April today. Lovely Blossom. It will look fantastic with rain drops this afternoon.
