Today is Garden Bloggers Foliage Day hosted by Christina at Creating my own garden of the Hesperides. Spring is making its presence felt in my garden, waking up plants that have been a bit sleepy for awhile. I thought it might be appropriate to focus this report on foliage that is just making its appearance at this time.

In checking out my hellebores in the woods I discovered a large number of seedlings. They may well be crosses of the plants in the area. As the weather gets warmer I will try to transplant some of them into pots. Who knows? I may have a First Place Winner on my hands.

It looks like things are waking up in my garden. I hope it is in yours.
