It was a very long drawn out winter...one that I cursed, one that was too wet to get into the soil, one that is adios! So much happy happens in spring--green hills, Easter celebration, and yep, the garden takes hold!The "Big Payoff" is what i like to call it! Ralph, the earth is laughing!
With all the to-do lists that are constant, it seems that the garden is never at the top, but I have realized it is oh-so-necessary for the soul. This is the first year that help needed to be called in! Between my husband and I, we managed to revive and nurture our garden. Here's a peek.....
the new rose that just arrived, creamy white with a chartreuse inside.
the queen of the garden
sweet sweet peas
I think this is a form of vibirnum
the last of the lilac and snowballs for the season
and let's not forget some of the wildlife taking refuge!
