This is a lovely time of year, when the fresh green shoots are pushing out of the ground and springing from the branches. So many plants are as nice now as when they are in flower - in my opinion. Honeysuckle, for instance, is verdant and lush in early spring whereas it gets dusty and tired later. Many roses have deep red leaf buds. Even lavender is special at this time without its flowers.
