We had a few more days of glorious sun last week, so I spent a good amount of time digging around in the garden, both mine and my mom's. It's both inspiring and exhausting. I have a lot of space to work with, and yet I have too much space to work with.
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.
