Well the garden is still a bit muddy from the onslaught of rains we’ve had this past week, but the sun came back out today which was nice. Unfortunately it wasn’t the warmest day (40’s) but it wasn’t raining and that’s the important thing. As you can see in the photo above the last bed left to rake out is the Arbor Garden. Still haven’t gotten to it yet. Probably this weekend once it dries up a bit more. Plus the grass needs a good mowing, it really leaped with all this extra moisture too. But everything is really starting to pop now. The Spireas & Hydrangeas are leafing out and there is more signs of green then brown now. Even the Sweet Autumn Clematis in the corner is starting to fill in after it’s severe late fall haircut. This area has changed dramatically in just three weeks time. Spring is here!
My favorite little daffodils are blooming right now. I ordered these from Brent and Becky’s bulbs a few years ago and they are spread throughout all the garden beds. They have multiple blooms on a single stem and they bloom for a few weeks every spring. They look great as companions to Muscari or alone. It’s really hard to photograph them since the flowers hang down and right now they are pretty wet. Even though I didn’t do much in the garden today other than enjoy it, it was a great first day of Spring!
