The snow has gone, but it’s super rainy and it’s kind of warm. Since the snow has melted I can see the garden again and now I am feeling a spring fever of sorts. This is also brought on by the constant delivery of garden catalogs in the mail.
I have been going through the catalogs one by one making notations and creating a wish list. The pictures presented here are of several plants I would like to purchase. So far I have selected about $500 worth of bulbs! This isn’t going to happen nor do I have the room to plant that many bulbs. My garden also lacks sufficient sunlight for most of the plants I like so I need to be selective.
This year I think I will plant some flowering bulbs in the herb garden. I think it would be lovely to have a splash of color among the various textures of green. Doing this will provide room for more flowering plants in an area that receives a lot more light than the larger raised beds created last year.
Everything in the greenhouse has died. It’s very sad. Every time I walk past it I get sad and mad, but there is nothing to be done. There is a slim chance a few things could surprise me and come back, but everything in there was subtropical. This year I am considering replacing items with hardier type plants that could withstand some cold temperatures. However, I do enjoy subtropical plants for their graceful look on the front porch.
Spring will soon be upon us and our hands will rejoice in the soil.
