DOES ANYONE ELSE feel like spring just flew past us? I don't remember the spring blooms ever opening so quickly. The collection above is a few of the blooms from the garden this weekend. Many of the daffodils that open early spring are gone leaving behind the doubling yellow daffodils. We quickly moved the summer into the garden by working hard on the mulching and pond maintenance. The rain was welcomed today because I desperately needed a day of rest after all the spring clean up in the past few days.
Boo found a pot that was waiting to be planted and took a nap.... all day!
Fiber Optic - for the past two years this was the 'hot item' that was hard to keep in stock at most greenhouse / nurseries in our neck of the woods. Much to my surprise I am finding plenty in stock at retailers such as Home Depot and Walmart. This greenery was found at Meijers for $2. I just had to buy this after paying well over $5 in years past. This is an interesting accent to any collection with it's appearance of a optical lamp after the little blooms appear on the ends of the grass.
The rain has passed for the day and the green is just POPPING throughout the garden and landscaping. It is finally feeling like spring. If we could only stop the clock on those average temperature days of spring so we can enjoy the color and freshness.
