spring is here...
Blooming right now: daffodils, freesia, roses (just the miniature ones so far), ranunculus, camellias, pansies, Iceland poppies (well, the wind took all the petals away the last few days but there are new buds ready to pop), snapdragons, lavender, violets (although they are almost finished), nasturtiums and daisies. The hummingbirds are finding the salvia. The bougainvillea is a happy pink. This morning, the first calla lily opened.
Sometimes, I think I want to be a gardener who sticks to a single themed color. There would be only white daisies, white snapdragons, white poppies. A white garden is amazing in the moonlight. But how could I decide on one color? Leave out pink? Leave out purple? Leave out yellow? It would be impossible! So my garden is a little bit of this, a little bit of that.
