I was going to say that my garden has been waking from her slumber over the last few weeks, but if she slept at all, she really had only the briefest of cat-naps.
In winters past I would have said that nothing much happens from July to August, but now that I’m actually paying attention I can see that nothing stops around here, it just changes gears. And right now spring is notching up through the gears at a rapid pace.
Just a few photos of early spring to share this time round, winter coughs and colds have been playing havoc at our house, so changes in the garden are thanks to the efforts of spring digging her toes in, not me digging my fingers in the earth. I just hope I can get back out there before she turns her attention more fully to the weeds!
This is the first year I’ve tried growing Dutch crocus, they are very pretty, but I made the mistake of planting them in my lawn and they are so tiny that they look quite lost. I might try transferring them to some pots for next year.
