The raindrops looked like crystals sprinkled on the garden.
The daylilies have popped.
One of the best shows so far has been a one year-old sweetshrub that I sensibly protected with deer net. It has been sending out these beautiful cerise blooms on last year’s growth.
Yes, I have been teased about my urn planters sporting cherry tomato plants. That’s okay, though. I’ll enjoy popping those sweet, sun-warmed tomatoes right into my mouth while I sit on the deck reading the latest thriller.
Today, I checked on the pea plants and found NOTHING
I’ve got basil growing in the front, along with rose bushes. Why not? Basil looks good all season long.
The cold spring set bloom time back a bit, so we are just enjoying the last of the daffodils and forsythia.

Narcissus “King Alfred” is the first of my narcissus species to bloom. The other varieties I’ve planted are slower. Like me, they just didn’t want to get out of the bed!
Upcycle A Lantern Chandelier Into A Mini Greenhouse! This is my craziest upcycle so far, for 2018.
Gardeners from around the world share six photos relating to their gardens, or clients’ gardens, or gardens they visit.

It looks as though winter is really on its way out. Though, there is always…
In all of this contemplating, very little actually happens. Ha!
A little respite from February
There are signs of life!

I’ve been dreaming about what I’d like to try this spring.
The burning bushes don’t look so hot today!
In the garden, nothing but peace.
