Earlier this year we had resolved not to put in much of a garden, mostly due to our new location and the overwhelming time constraints with all the scheduled work ahead. However …. after +/- 1600 shovels of turned sod a small plot has emerged in our back yard. This will provide a small space for a fellow gardener while she develops her own land for future gardens.
The gardening has been very delayed this year mostly due to the continued frosts and damp weather. Despite all the unseasonal cool spring weather we now have a profusion of blossoms. The apple trees have outdone themselves and are literally overflowing with blossoms.
The bees now have a fresh feast to enjoy in the apple orchard as all the dandelions turn into fluffy puff balls.
A cascade of white Spirea blossoms greets us at the corner of the porch and the Lilac blossoms will open soon and exhale their sweet aroma into the air.
