In my last post I was hoping to see some spring bulbs "in the next couple weeks"! Well, gardening is full of surprises, especially in Spring! If I had just waded through the snow and looked a little closer, I probably would have seen some tulips emerging even then! I did see them the next day, coming right up through the snow! Apparently the deep snow cover we had from late November until now kept the ground quite warm. Today I discovered some crocuses with buds already, where there was snow yesterday!
Every morning I go out to see what more has emerged from the snow. Since I always tell myself I'll remember and never mark what I planted where, there are always surprises. (I now know I won't remember, but I still enjoy the surprises)!
I'm looking forward to working in my vegetable garden, eventually!
I'm not sure what kind of bush this is, but it is covered in little pink flowers every May and red berries in late summer. The bees and birds love it. It really got crushed by the snow this winter.
The tomatoes have grown a lot since I transplanted them to bigger conatainers. Here they are on my bedroom windowsill...
The rest of the seedlings are thriving, too. The stocks, nicotiana and phlox are all up now...
And here is where I hope to make yet another flower garden! :) The ground there is so rocky I never considered it before, but it suddenly dawned on me in February how lovey it would look with a garden there!
I hope you are enjoying your spring gardens as much as I am! :)
