It isn't in full bloom yet but I couldn't resist taking some photos of the bits that are in bloom. Spring seems late this year and all my plants are somewhat behind but things are picking up now and the ferns are starting to come up too, I love seeing the way they unfurl. Life really is good.
Truly, I find gardening to be just magical.
Hello...my name is Heather...and I'm...an edger.
It's true. I'm addicted to edging(that's my favourite edger below). I have such a hard time stopping myself. This addiction has served me well in years past though as it serves to make my perennial beds bigger and bigger. That can't be a bad thing. ;-) I think the thing of it is that it just makes all the gardens look so tidy and pretty, who can resist that?While I was out there edging I couldn't help but think that before I know it this area...will look like this.
The hyacinths are in bloom and their scent is combining with the scent from the carpet of violets we have up front. It is absolutely delightful.
All the blossoms seem to be attracting the bees.
And this? This is one of my favourite flowering shrubs (there are many). It is a double flowering almond tree. Each year, when it is in full bloom (see here or here), I take a photo of the boys standing in front of it. I love to see how much they grow from year to year, not to mention the changes in our house and gardens year to year.
