It has been a cool spring so far and my gardens are beginning to come alive once again. I’ve had help this year, making it is the earliest I’ve had the beds edged and mulched, which is a relief. The annoying biting bugs have just begun to hatch out– every year my goal is to work bug-free in cool weather, making the work much more pleasant.
I’m always amazed to see the difference a few months make in growth of the garden. Below is the yard, garden and woodland beyond, just barely out of dormancy. So empty! Those who have followed me in past years might remember mid-summer shots where sunflowers tower and growth of perennials and annuals is lush. In a few short months, it will be so again. Nature is miraculous!
I thought I’d share a few things that have me smiling and sighing these days.
I am so grateful to have lots of space in which to spend time while we wait out the stay-at-home orders. I know there are many others who are not as fortunate, so I hope they can vicariously stroll through mine. Enjoy!
