Aaaaaah! Spring is finally here!
The weather's been fantastic but a little unpredictable. Some days it gets up to 17C (65F) and other days it's much cooler. We are still getting frost in the mornings so I don't dare make my hanging baskets yet. Everything in my garden is so late this year. I'd say we're about two weeks behind schedule if I look back at last year's pictures.
I went to the garden center on Tues with G and we had a lovely time walking around. I wanted to buy a cistus to replace the one that died but they didn't have the colour that I wanted. G bought one tho. I picked up a helianthum (I'm sure I've spelled that wrong) and two double impatiens for the planter on the front porch.
Don't you love my Casa Grande tulip show in the front yard? I am very happy with how this bed is turning out. Just 5 years ago, it was covered in 6 ft junipers and looked very blah. We ripped it all out with the help of a rented chainsaw and it's so much prettier. The area near the tree trunk needs a little something. A small bench? A planter? Or maybe a twirly tree decoration? Hmmm...
