I don't think any photographer can pass up the garden after a spring rain. I know I can't.
There's just something about the way the flowers and vegetables look. All the spring plants thrive on this early season rain.
It's fun to explore the garden on gray days.
As always, I love to get close to the flowers.

Tulips come in many shapes and sizes.
These tulips grow in the fenced vegetable garden. Since I'm a no till gardener, I'll simply put some compost down and plant tomatoes in the same bed. I'll start putting tomatoes in the garden around May 15th and will continue planting through July.
Looking forward to seeing this tulip bloom, I can't remember which variety it is.
'Shirley' is a pretty tulip. It reminds me of a friend who shares the same name. That's why I planted it.
Garlic greens hold on to a fat droplet of rain.
An azalea just outside of the living room picture window prepares to bloom.
This is a lettuce mix from Renee's Seeds called 'European Reds and Greens.' I can't wait to try it in a salad.
