Stretching Their Arms and Legs Out

Green all over again.  Spring is the season I love most.  It’s not too hot, not too cold… and green.  I love seeing our garden slowly waking up from a long winter sleep, pushing their leaves and flower buds out.  I feel really itchy at this time of year; wanting to clean, trim, mulch and plant new members in the garden.  The weather channel helps me determine what I should do, but the plants themselves help me even more.  I take my hint from them.  It was writ that when seedlings germinate, that is when you start sowing your seed outside.  Trust in nature, it works every time.

Nothing much in our garden now, mostly green leaves and some early blooms Woodland Phlox, Bleeding heart, rescued tulips that I mentioned earlier, and the crimson red of Japanese Maples that give a great contrast to the garden.  Our garden comes to life with sight, sound and scent every spring.
