Thank you Cold Winter!!! I love you so much!
When we have a cold winter, my garden is always so pretty. This past winter we were blessed with cold, snow, and more cold. February had very few of the warmer days that we usually have. By March everyone was complaining of the cold, but I knew what it meant for my garden and was secretly saying RAH! The pea gravel we put down is still fabulous, though we had a huge wind storm this past week, and I've yet to collect all the debris that is completely covering it. I also need to take care of the weeds starting to come up through the gravel. This will be a busy weekend!
The Columbine blooms are in decline now and the Iris are almost done, too. The Salvia, May Night has been gorgeous and is always being visited by a cute little bumble bee. The large Viburnum dropped many petals in the big winds, and now the remaining ones are starting to decline. I love the look of the petals on the ground and floating in the little water feature.
The garden is getting a little quiet right now, before the move into the next phase of blooms. Can't wait to see how the rest of the year goes.
I hope your having a great Saturday, thanks so much for stopping by!
