It's that time of year when the promise of spring into summer makes itself known.
Spring is always to prettiest time of year for my garden. These pictures don't begin to show what's soon coming.
Though the rhododendrons have almost finished, the roses will soon explode while daisies wave in the breeze. The lavender is just pushing up flower buds and will be a purple - or lavender - haze by July.
The swallows have moved in above the arbor, soon little baby chirps will be heard.
Snow in summer blankets the beds while winter's heather finishes her bloom. The poor little scrubby tree on the left may have to come out. I tried to rescue it from struggling too long in a confining pot. The green along the stone pathway is oregano. It loves to travel and will seed any and everywhere. I regularly pull it out.
I created this lovely garden art from a metal grate. It was very easy, I just ran over it with the lawn mower. Ronnie-baby didn't appreciate, though, how it tangled itself in the mower blades breaking some sort of bracket and bending the blades. I think it's very creative and a nice modern art sort of contrast to our country garden.
This is a small glimpse into my early spring garden. More to come next time.
Wishing you all peaceful spring days!
