Just to get folks warmed up for summer here in the Northern hemisphere. . . ready for a beach chair, about half a dozen fuzzy drinks and a view like back on Maui

Mmmm. Reminds me of Polihale Beach, Kauai. We took our sandals off, and immediately put them back on. Polihale means "barking dogs", the noise folks make when walking across the scorching hot sands of the beach.

I have them in the garden, too, along with the crocus and the squills... I should think of my camera when going to the garden....

Yes, do bring your camera! What do you call aconites in Germany, Cara?

Spotted the daffodil buds today. So I took some pix of them and the laminaria that grow around them:



And while I was at it, I took some pix of the chives and parsley, both coming back without help from me.

I love those first flowers after winter. We have crocus everywhere, the daffy's are just opening, tulips are up but not open and those other cuties we planted but can't remember what they are .. they just make a person feel good !

Chives are so hearty .. mine are up again already too ... and like yours .. with no help from me at all.
