According to the calendar spring is here. However the first day of spring isn’t always the first spring day.
Spring seems to be overshadowed with the spread of this world wide virus. While we are in self isolation during this scary, unknowing, unusual, bizarre, difficult time (I’m sure many more adjectives could describe it) I’m keeping my mind occupied with reading, crafting, relaxing, and working on my website.
How lovely to bring a bit of spring inside, just because.
I try to spend time each day walking the garden and looking of promising signs that the garden is awakening after its winter nap.
I frequently have to look carefully and move old leaves and branches away to reveal new life.
The crocus, tulips, daffodils, day lilies, rhubarb, bloody dock, garlic chives, pussy willows,hyacinth, iris and Egyptian walking onions are showing new growth. Clicking the tags at the bottom of this post will take you to more information about each plant.
This is the first of my garden journal entries for 2020. I hope you are able to get out and explore your garden and look for new growth. I’d love to hear what is growing in your garden.
Gardening is – growing food and flowers, a lifestyle, nurturing, exercise, learning, addictive, relaxing, therapy, hard work, and lots more
