What is it that we love so much about spring?
Is it the sense of rebirth? The glory of a new beginning? The birds chirping?
For me it’s getting in the dirt. I plant flowers mostly, with a veggie here and there just for the adventure.
I can’t crawl around on the ground like I used to. Well, I can get down there but I’d never manage to get back up. So, I have this neat little wagon/chair/trolley (you can find one on Amazon.com) as my planting buddy. It serves me well.
I also have a really good landscaper. He does a great job as well.
I spent 15 years living in a townhouse with very limited growing space, mostly in pots on the patio, but now I have a house again and can enjoy all the planting Spring has to offer. Not to mention Fall, which is great for planting shrubs and trees. See that pic up there? All those beautiful azaleas were planted last Fall, along with a dogwood and a redbud tree. They already bloomed this Spring and I really should have taken pictures. Darn.
Here’s the other end, in front of the porch.
I’m still working on the back yard, so no pics yet. Maybe next time.
