Waiting for spring III


During a walk in the musician's garden yesterday afternoon, I saw this shrub with tiny bell like yellow flowers just starting to bloom. I have no idea what this is, maybe one of you knows it?
---------------------------
Au cours d'une petite promenade dans le jardin des musiciens hier, j'ai vu ce petit arbuste avec ses jolies petites clochettes jaunes sur le point d'éclore. Je n'ai aucune idée de ce que c'est, peut-être le savez-vous ?

It is definitely a sign of Spring.

Here in the western part of north america, we have something like it called oregon grape. It's genus is Mahonia.

very colorful for Spring. I am glad you enjoyed the farmer's market photos on my site. A banana for lunch, that is not enough for me. I like a banana for breakfast almost everyday, but I need a substantive lunch.

Spring Part III, VDP. How many time will we have to wait until Spring FOREVERMORE It is arriving shyly, little by little, tipping toe.
Good Sunday.

@Jacob: never fear, I'll tell you about the garden, all in due time! ;-)

Nice touch of green. I have also been out looking for signs of spring, no luck so far.

No idea, but is pretty to view. Imagine what the open blooms will look like!

Can't help you with the identity of the plant, but it is gorgeous.

@Natural Moments, Bath et Alice: thanks, merci!

Cergie said...

Je confirme, c'est un mahonia qui aime l'ombre, lorsqu'il sera fleuri (jaune) il aura une délicieuse odeur de miel...

Jackie said...

That is very pretty whatever it is! And a fantastic photo!
