Blooming in the Garden

Over the past few weeks some garden beauties have popped up from the dark cold soil. My garden is full of purples, pinks, yellows & blues. Every day something new is in bloom - I love this time of year!

Inspired by the daffodils, rosemary flowers, iris, primrose, and hyacinth in my yard, I took a few moments to spruce up my neighbor's planter. Last year I planted thyme, oregano, rosemary, and bachelors button in her planter. Most are still going strong - but I wanted to put a little spring in her yard too. This year I added another rosemary plant and some purple & white violas. She just had a baby, so I know she doesn't have the time and it only took me 10 minutes.

The veggie seedlings in my basement continue to grow, and think it's about time to plant my root veg (carrots, beets, kohlrabi, etc..) But this time of year I make sure to take a moment to enjoy the early spring flowers. Soon those effortless gems will be gone, and before I know it I'll be fretting, watering, feeding and searching for yellow tomato flowers!
