My name is Carolyn E. Massey, and I reside in a neighborhood called Green Hill Farms on the western edge of Philadelphia. I love, love, love plants, trees, and flowers, and an enthralled spring is finally here and showing her beauty in many colors.
The sight of these color-rich tulips always takes my breath away. I am surprised each spring when they re-emerge.
More spring beauty: a pansy is delicately marked with lavender lines across its white face.
Another pansy in soft yellow.
And, for stark contrast, a nearly black pansy. Pansies have to have one of the widest varieties of color of any plant in the garden.
And another iconic color of spring: this azalea is loaded down with brilliant flowers so numerous they cover the entire plant.

To submit, send 5-10 photos to GPOD@finegardening.com along with some information about the plants in the pictures and where you took the photos. We’d love to hear where you are located, how long you’ve been gardening, successes you are proud of, failures you learned from, hopes for the future, favorite plants, or funny stories from your garden.
If you want to send photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box that is just fine.
