My First Weekend in the garden and boy was it lovely!

What a wonderful weekend I had in the garden!  The weather was perfectly spring like.  There was so much weeding and cleaning up to do it was a bit overwhelming at first.  Ever feel that way?  All I could do was start with one little job at a time.

There are lovely signs of spring.

I also had some new plants to plant, and others to move around the yard. My husband is very good and does the planting for me, even the movings around of plants (sometimes more than once).

I had forgotten that I had some very pink anemone growing in a container.  What a lovely surprise to see them this week!

Our strawberry plants are in a mess.  You should really clean up the plants around September.  Some how our schedules got in the way of our gardening last fall.  So we  are now in the process of cleaning them up and what a job it is!

I cut back all of the green leaves of my Hellebores. Some of their leaves were turning black and it wasn’t pretty.  They have been flowering all winter, so if you are looking for a winter blooming plant, this is definitely one to get (and so many colours to choose from).

Our winter garlic is finally up, growing and doing well. And look at that, another strawberry bed in need of attention!  (arg!)

This is the first daffodil in my yard.  It is kind of lonely all on its own. Hopefully the others will be up soon!

I’m so happy to have had time in the garden this weekend! I hope spring has sprung for you, too (or will soon)!

Happy spring!

  1. Dear Dana, The gardens here are still under several feet of snow! It’s so good to see flowers in someone’s yard pop up!

    • Hi Judi, and I love seeing your snowmen! I agree, it is nice to see the flowers. Too bad we can’t have a bit of both: a short winter with some snow, and a lovely spring bursting with flowers! Xx Dana

    • Hi Kimberley, I know it is crazy how much snow you have there! But then you’ll turn around and have a super warm spring and hot summer when I’ll be at the same mild temperature from spring through till fall. Funny how that goes 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    • Hi Michele, Thank you! Funny about the weather in the States, it goes from super cold to super warm so quickly! Hopefully all of that snow will be gone in no time (think spring!). 🙂
