Mid-April ~ Spring in full swing!


Here we are in mid-April and spring is in full swing now! Flowering trees, shrubs, bulbs and the fresh green of new leaves are emerging. It has cooled back down into the 50′s and 60′s during the day with cool nights, which is a blessing. Those high temperatures shortened the bloom time of the very early bulbs, but the ones just coming on now might stay a bit longer.
Strolling around the garden this morning revealed a whole new set of wonderful blossoms. Plus, I took a few muscari (grape hyacinths) and made a little vignette with them using a wire cloche. The cloche was a real find on clearance at Home Goods and just needed to come home with me! Warm, sunny days ahead now, so each day will welcome new interest in the garden. Happy Spring to all of my friendly readers!
