It's the first day of spring and I have spent the day in the garden cleaning up. I have crocus blooming! I spotted this crocus bloom on March 18, one day later than last year. Today I noticed more crocus blooming in the back.
Spring has officially arrived! Daffodils, species tulips, and reticulated iris are also sprouting. So far no sign of the snow drops I planted last year but they are in a shadier spot. Still, I wonder if they have made it.
I have only just begun spring clean up, but here is what is already starting to come up in my garden so far:
Achillea 'Coronation Gold'
Campanula 'Blue Clips'
Cerastium 'Silver Carpet'
Feather Reed Grass 'Karl Foerster'
Penstemon 'Jingle Bells'
Sedum 'Blue Spruce'
Viola (actually blooming!)
I have to add this little note: I apologize for not visiting some of you in awhile. I have taken a part time job at our local library (in addition to our business), to better fund my artwork and garden. I am still adjusting to my new schedule and hope to stop by and visit with you soon. I meant to do a little catch up this weekend but the sun was out and well, I couldn't resist being in the garden. I hope you are seeing signs of spring in your garden, too.
