Late Spring

Spending time in the last couple of months on family affairs exhausted me both physically and mentally and didn't leave much time left for anything else. I retreated to Instagram @petalsandwingsimages as my outlet since I didn't have to spend time correcting images on PhotoShop. Now, as the dust settled, I'm back. With plenty of... Continue Reading →

Primrose

Beauty With Low Maintenance When crocuses and daffodils start to fade, primroses take the baton and continue running, coloring our garden.  I've been planting different colors of primrose in our garden for the last few years and continue to look for new colors every year.  There are many types of primrose but not many are...

Garden And Poetry

April: The Most Poetic Month I find April to be a very uplifting and romantic month for me.  Leaves sprout and start to unfurl, seedlings are pushing themselves through the soil to the surface and early flowers are blossoming.   Birds sing loudly to make their territory known and start their courtship.  Some birds have already...

The First Day Of Spring

And The Flowers Agree Today is the official first day of spring and feels like it too.  Spring flowers bloom, birds start clearing their territory and look for nesting spots.  Not much to describe; just happy that spring is finally here.

Late Spring Garden

Best Time Of The Season I love spring time.  There is a lot of work to do in the garden in spring in order to keep up with the fast growing plants but it's the best time of year, in my opinion anyway.  When the weather gets gradually warmer, plants follow accordingly and they are much...

Snow In April

The Morning of April 16th I've been so happy with the temperature climbing up and the ability to see green again.  I started to clean up the garden, pruning roses and feeding plants.  Happiness, it seemed, was short lived.  The rain that started on April 15th turned to snow overnight and dumped two inches on the ground.  The...

Spring Vegetable Garden

Sprouting Time After a long wait for fresh backyard salad, I can hardly stop myself from sowing seeds in the vegetable garden.  As soon as the soil softens, judged by seeing weeds coming up, I put Arugula, Radish (Cherry Belle and French Breakfast), Pak choi, Mizuna, Kale, Swiss chard, Scallion, Lettuce, and Broccoli Raab in.   The...

Weighing Priority

Weighing Priority: To Blog Or Not To Blog Spring is finally here, though a little too cold for April.  There are plenty of things to do in the garden and most of them are time sensitive.   Cleaning up dead stalks, feeding, pruning, training, mulching, starting the seedlings...they all need to be done at certain...

Mostly Green Now

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;...

Spring flowers

Dancing in the sun It is spring, officially three days ago, but it feels like summer.  I don't know what to do in the garden any more.  We had a snow storm in October that took down a few of our trees.  Then came a very mild winter, hardly any snow.  Now early spring, but... Continue Reading →
