when the bees are buzzing around in the garden. I haven’t seen one of these little polinators for a few months now. A few showed up when I plopped these Heathers on the back patio the other day. It was another beautiful day here in my neck of the woods which makes for good gardening. And yes I took advantage of it by giving that new Camelia ‘Pink Perfection’ a new place to rest in the Woodland Garden. Of course that meant I had to dig out the Nandina that was occupying that spot first. The neighbor’s son came over and gave me a hand with that digging which was not fun believe me. The roots on that thing were thick & not cooperative in the least. We finally dug deep enough that we were able to yank it out. He grabbed it from one end & me from the other. We almost fell on our butts, lol. Good thing it was dusk and nobody was outside. They would of had some built in entertainment, don’t you think. Another stroll throught the garden brought more signs of awakening from perennials and bulbs. I just love this time of the year when everything is new and fresh again. It just has to be spring, even though the calender says 12 more days. Maybe the bees know something the calender doesn’t???
