Spring Surprises

As I sat across the settlement table from Mrs. Judy, the former owner of our country homestead 2 1/2 months ago, I asked her if there were any special plantings I should be aware of. She replied "No, no...nothing special at all...maybe just a few azaleas."

So I set about mentally planning all the flora I would need to get to make springtime beautiful in the years to come.

Then April happened.

Nothing Special? Well, maybe so if one does not consider a field of wildflowers, blooming bulbs, Lilacs and Virginia Red Buds, and Apple Blossoms anything special!!!

I wonder what other suprises await in the seasons to come???

Wonderful, I'd leave your garden for a full year to see what comes up. Also saves your back a bit!!

This is the fun part...our first year we couldn't wait to see each season. I took copious notes on everything. Your place is a lot further along than ours but you'll keep finding surprises.
