|Muscari and Tete-a-Tete Daffodils|
There is so much to do this time of the year! Some gardeners are still focusing on cleaning their gardens. We are way beyond that! Splitting perennials, creating new garden beds, sowing more vegetables, hardening seedlings, transferring pots outside..what to do first? As we approach Mother's day (this coming Sunday) I keep my eyes on the forecast and I am happy to report that there is no danger of frost in the next 10 days, so we are going ALL OUT this week! The dahlias will be planted today, the tomatoes and peppers are getting slowly adjusted to the outdoor. I hope to plant some beans and annual herbs soon! So much to do! Not enough hours in the day!
I also volunteered to help some friends with either challenging garden areas plans, plants or potting annuals! It all needs to be done in the next two weeks before temperatures jump up too high!
Do you also feel rushed in the spring?
Here are some pictures from end of April, beginning of May. Dominant colors in the garden are yellow, white and and blue. And come back soon! Tomorrow is Tulips time and Friday is Vegetable Garden up-date time!
