Spring has definitely arrived in Southeastern Ontario, and is paying no attention to the traumatic events happening around the globe. While I’ve had no blooms aside from Snowdrops – and it’s a banner year for them! – and a few crocus (I’ve realized they do not like my limestone filled clay soil…) there are other bulbs quickly pushing their way up. Every day is an adventure in the garden – and since I’m now working from home I get to explore morning, noon and night!
Here are six things now happening in my yard – to see Six things in gardens around the world, be sure to visit The Propagator’s site.
1 – Buds a Bursting! Korean Spice Viburnum and Canada Serviceberry are getting ready!
2 – Bulbs a breaking through! A row of tulips, Allium ‘Purple Sensation’ making an appearance:
3 – Garlic!
4 – Rhubarb!
5 – Moss! It’s stayed a nice green all winter but this week it’s growing like crazy!!!
6 – One last look at my favourite stand of ornamental grass, before it gets whacked back in a few weeks.
