Such an awesome weekend!
I cleaned out the chicken coop –
Admired some pretty flowers that are blooming right now –
Here’s a busy little bee making the most of the grape hyacinths. They are the first flowers to bloom in abundance in my garden each spring and are always such a welcome burst of lovely sweet colour. J’adore grape hyacinths, don’t you?
I’ve not grown camellias before – these are my first and newly planted this past autumn. I planted them to provide some screening from our neighbours although it will take some 20 years for them to grow to a useful size to fill that role. Until then I will enjoy their spring blooms – and think of planting more.
And swooned as the heavenly scent of the lemon blossoms wafted across the whole yard. Right now the lemon and lime trees are spending their days outside enjoying the dozey bumblebees and the warm sunshine, and then they go back inside when nighttime temps dip too low. The weatherman is predicting a hard freeze later this week so I’ll be doing this citrus dance for another few days at least before I can move them out for the summer.
I also threw Holly Tone around everything and now the whole place reeks – ugh! The forecast is for rain tonight and tomorrow morning so my hope is that it will all be washed in and away in a day or so. I feel totally accomplished. Vitamin G really does a lot of good for the soul, don’t you think?
We come from the earth
We return to the earth
And in between, we garden.
