The Snake Dance

20140409-184508.jpg

One thing I enjoy at this time of year, is watching my Solomon’s Seal (Polygonatum) emerging. The new shoots look, to me, like snakes rising from the ground, head first. (Me and my imagination!) They grow and unfurl, like no other plant in my garden, finally opening up to produce lovely, fresh green leaves, with pure white, small bells, often edged in green, dangling from the underside. A cool, fresh combination – after a fascinating birth!
