The weather is beginning to warm up in the mountains and it makes me cheerful. Please, no more snow! Last year was an exception when it snowed in the morning in the middle of May. My husband and I were at church, it was a cold day and we were astonished to see snow through the window.
It was about 80F degrees the other day, I went outside to play. I have tons of things to do in the garden: cleaning, organizing, planting, etc. I'm going to be busy but I love it. I finally got around to sowing organic carrots, peas, spinach and Swiss chard from seeds too.
My perennials haven't bloomed yet. I needed to see color so I bought a couple of plants for the front patio where we get partial sun and shade. Dear hubby built a window box for me. I transplanted two ivy and a trailing plant (I can't remember the name) that I already had into the window box. The new addition were coral bells and English primrose.
Perfect for small-space gardening.
I fell in love with this Oriental lily at the garden center. I have to get a new container to transplant it soon – another reason for me to go back!
I couldn't resist – something new for my garden is Persian buttercup (Ranunculus asiaticus). I'm planting more annuals this year.
I recently received this carrot grow bag from Gardener's Supply Company in the mail. My kitty, Lilo, always get excited when I get something new.
A cat grow bag? She's super cute and spoiled!
What's happening in your garden? Happy spring!
