In the Gardens this Morning

Beginning my walk with a stroll through the Arbor Garden, the garden is still in an early morning mist.

The garlic is looking sassy in one of the vegetable gardens.

I spent most of the weekend in the berry patch, pruning out dead Raspberry canes from the Raspberries and then all the Raspberry canes and other rogue plants from the Black Currants, Blueberries, Gooseberries and Red Currants.  You can see Sheba inspecting my work.

Sheba continuing our round with a walk up the hedgerow as the fog lifts.

The Plums look poised to burst into blossom today as our first sun in about a week shines today.

More piles on the other side of the berry patch. Can you see that tree I cut out? It was a box elder that had sprung up in the Gooseberries!

One of the early Primroses.

If ever there was a Flower that looked like it is dancing, it’s Pink Magnolia.  It’s I AM affirmation is “I AM comfort amidst times of change.”

There is something so fun about Grape Hyacinth.  They are always the first Flower children pick in the May gardens.

One of the little old ladies who taught me to garden when I was a young woman always called these THE VEES, and she was very intent on rooting every last one of them out of her garden because Violets like to take over.  I tried to rein them in for a number of years but now, I’ve thrown caution to the wind and have let them GO!

Have a wonderful day!
