Rain is heading our way tomorrow but these past two days have been sunny and warm. Our winter this year has been the mildest I can ever remember. The ground never did freeze so here it is March 6 and my garden is already springing to life.
I have been raking leaves and cutting back dead growth and making the garden all tidy. I like to get the new mulch down before things start to take off, but the garden is just leaving me in the dust this year.
I do love raking back the winter leaves and finding the plants springing to life. Sometimes they are all white or yellow because they haven’t broken through to the sunlight yet. Yesterday I cut back the hardy banana trees and today they have shot up with 2 inches of new growth!
This time of year the camellias are blooming.
I love them and I need more of these for my garden!
One sure sign of spring is when the forsythia starts to bloom.
AND, how about that fabulous Christian! I am a devotee of Project Runway and of course I stayed up to watch the finale last night. All the collections were fabulous, but of course Christian’s was fierce!
