Spring has exploded on us. Sun up at 5.30 and down at 10. This ruby dawn is taken at 5 a.m. through the library window, while the new sprung birch leaves were dancing sun rise polka in the storm.

My garden is a colorful wild mix of weed , seed and bulbs.
Pollen of all kinds are making the air think with dust and all Gunnar's 30 allergies are blossoming too.

I know our garden needs some water, but like my mother, I am superstitious about watering.
It's a cry for rain, that's only too soon answered. My rhododendrons don't agree.

Visit teach Mary for more Ruby Tuesdays here

How nice for you - finally, spring!

I love the glimpse of the bleeding heart. Unfortunately, mine seems to have died last summer, as it did not reappear this spring. Sigh.

I had a few days that seemed like allergy reactions about one month ago, and happily, nothing since. Good luck to Gunnar.

The cold of Norway is long, the Winter nights long. I guess with the dark season now gone, new growth and planting is in order! Your garden is lovely, Spring flowers to light up the ground. Lovely seasonal rubies!

Lovely, lovely dawn picture - of the pink glow in the sky at sunrise. Dawn in my favorite time of all. Simply beautiful.

So are the flowers.

Thanks for providing me with such a refreshing visit to your blogplace.

Hi Felson,

Dawn is not so colorful here today, the sky is a bit overcast... but allergies know no clock. Gunnar and I will sniffle for weeks yet!

I am so glad that you are picturing Norway for your viewers! What a country it is, and now as the days grow longer, it is beauty so different than the winter months.
As to allergies, tell Gunnar that this Norwegian Texas girl has the same problem! My eyes are puffy and red and my head feels stuffy and yucky. I will be so glad when the sun finally chases all the pollen away. :(

Your flowers are wonderful! I remember being so shocked in the far northern part of Norway last summer, to see so many beautiful colors and types of flowers. They were just hiding during the winter as they waited for spring.

Keep that camera clicking. It does my heart good!

Hi Felisol, I missed visiting you. I was busy getting the house ready for Sonia and family and after that lost my internet for 3 days.

Oh my your lovely red flowers are a feast to the eyes, specially in this dry hot weather. So happy to see your colorful thriving garden Felisol
