It’s the beginning of spring, no doubt about that! Birds are chirping, squirrels skittering about hunting for their hidden treasures, women pushing babies in strollers, children riding bikes or doing wheelies on skateboards, and people just milling about here and there in the out-of-doors.
And for me, it means raking up the fall and winter pine straw, cleaning out last years flower beds, and the start of my planting and replanting flowers galore. This past weekend was beautiful here, so I did just that, as noted in some of my photos below. Sure, I had a head start by visiting my local garden centers where I was able to purchase some rarely large plants, but I also did some planting with seeds and purchased some seedlings as well. No sense in starting from scratch for everything.
I’ve a big project ahead of me in my back yard. It is pretty pathetic looking, so I will provide a before an after scenario so you can see exactly what I’m talking about. In the meanwhile, I’ll enjoy the bits of color that I’ve already added.
Come visit me to see how my garden grows.
Till next time,
