What a difference a month makes! It’s been a long snowy season and I welcome spring. It’s a time of discovery–greeting old friends in the garden and making room for new beginnings. There is a lot going on. The Hill is greening up. Harry is pruning the Nanking cherry bush. Strawberries look promising. The nettle patch can’t be stopped and the garlic is coming up gangbusters. Tax day peas have germinated. Every day we can is spent outside, clearing, digging and in love with the land.
Saint Francis keeping watch in the flower garden. This statue is on loan for the summer. It belonged to my mother in law Mary O’Connor. She was my flower growing mentor. Mary gave me a package of cosmos seed and said “Even you should be able to grow these, dear.” Thank you Mary. I miss you and our garden talks.
I really have fun with this End of the Month Garden View project. Check out other end of the month views at The Patient Gardener.
