The yard and garden are coming alive with color. I just love the spring with all the beautiful colors that awaken our senses after a long gray winter.
Japanese Red Leaf Maple
We have a pair of these beautiful trees that we put out last year. We were a little concerned that they would make it through the horrible heat we had in August and then the extra cold winter we had, but here they are showing their beautiful color.
Collard Greens Blooming
These Collard's are a year old. We put them out early last spring, they made it through the heat and the cold and now they are blooming. I wanted to share the blooms with you before I trimmed them down. I am hoping they will make it another year.
Blooming Collard Greens
The White Wisteria is in full bloom and is just beautiful. The aroma fills the entire garden. Each little bloom is so delicate. It is a very old plant.
It is supposed to be very warm on Saturday so we will be planting on Saturday. We will be planting Tomatoes, Peppers, Radish, Early Peas, Green Beans, Squash, Cucumber, Sweet Basil, Parsley, and Rosemary. I already have many of the herbs growing and will be adding to them. We planted over 200 onions in January and some will be ready to eat soon. The lettuce is coming up and we will have a salad very soon. We will be planting things as we go along for the next few weeks so watch for the Garden Gate Post, if you are planting along with us.
I hope you enjoyed our Spring Blooms today and Happy Gardening!
Peace and Joy
