"Where man sees but withered leaves, God sees sweet flowers growing."
What a beautiful week this has been in zone 6B, Massachusetts!
|This is a crocus I forgot all about. Below, is the same plant a few days later.|
|The Primrose is coming around.|
|More Crocus that I didn't remember.|
|I love the blossoms on Pulmonaria. Pink and blue flowers on the same plant and no grafting!|
|Forsythia is a sure sign of spring!|
After a tormenting March, April is not disappointing. Today is the coolest day of the week, 50's F. Earlier this week, the temperature got up to 80F!
The Saver and I are in the middle of a home renovation which we are doing some of ourselves. It's been on hold while waiting for a cabinet to come in so, I've had the opportunity to be in the gardens every day. Very quickly, I've felt my age! I'm paying the price for a sedentary winter.....Still, there's so much satisfaction in seeing the gardens come along.
As I wait for plants to come up, I have to remind myself it's only the middle of April. Patience and more patience as I scour the earth for signs of plant growth. Next month there will be an explosion of plant life. I can hardly wait!
I hope you're enjoying your gardens as much as I'm enjoying mine.
Today, I'm grateful for the online gardening communities. Everyone is so friendly and helpful.
