Without much help from me, spring begins with tulips and bluebells brightening the green green beds. Once they retire for the year, it's up to me. Soon. I have already begun pulling out some of the weeds and grass that have invaded in full force.
I have already planted some sweet peas, beets, arugula, and carrots into one of the planter boxes. I've got six inches of pea shoots already! And, I think with last night's rain, they grew another inch today, but I'm not exactly getting out the ruler.
Otherwise, I am getting inspired for plantings, assuming I ever do get those weeds pulled out. I have a color scheme all picked out. I have seeds and a few tiny geranium plants. I think I'm too late for poppies and forget about the peonies. But I'm hoping for a couple of new dahlias, all in the same color scheme below. At least this is what I'm dreaming of.
