Replanting my perennial garden.
If I could have ordered up a perfect spring it would have looked and felt a lot like this one. Actually, I can’t remember a more perfect spring season. We have had cool to moderate temps, plenty of rain yet enough dry time for planting – which makes for very happy gardens. It has been ideal for replanting my perennial garden starting with the flower bed between the cabin and my studio, which had been pretty much destroyed by deer and the recent repairs and remodeling and work on the courtyard. But now it is the home to happy salvia, English lavender, penstemon ‘ red riding hood’, pink abelia, lantana, delphinium and coreopsis.
After stocking up on annuls at several local green houses I repurposed found objects like old wood crates, tin cans, gourds, a decaying bird house and even a rotting log into planters for my porch.
Soon to come during this near-perfect spring – a new blackberry patch and tomato and pepper garden.
I love springtime!
