Every where you look there are signs of spring’s arrival in our garden. The Forsythia is blooming, the Spirea and willow are putting out new leaves and the daffodils are starting to bloom.
The very first Iris to bloom in our garden is always a small border iris named ‘Ice Wings’.
The past few months seemed to have been filled with one difficulty after another for Jamie and me. Just when one thing seemed to work out another monkey wrench was thrown in the works. Between family, health and relationship issues, holidays and the just the pure stress of it all, the garden was just too much to keep up with. I’m very happy to report that things are much improved now and our lives seem to be finally returning to normal.
So what does a garden look like when it’s been neglected for five months? Not a pretty sight people…
Well Jamie and I got out there and busted our butts Sunday and made quite a dent in the clean up. You guys should see the pile by the road for the trash men to pick up! It’s not completely cleaned up, but I feel safe in saying that we are 80% there. We really are a dynamic team…
Ahhhhhhhhhh, I just love spring. Bright colors, rebirth and new beginnings.
