A Tour Around The Grounds

I took the dogs out the other morning and noticed the light on the red tulips was really good, so I ran back in (walked really) and got my camera. While I was at it, I made a little stroll around to see if anything else looked good and here’s what I found.  Spring is breaking out all over.




Nothing to eat yet from the garden, except asparagus, but lettuces, green onions, and radishes will be along pretty soon.  My tomatoes have been hardened off and are out of the greenhouse - just waiting for mid April. Only have a few more shrubs to prune and I'll be glad - I'm planning to keep them in better shape so I don't have to perform the major surgery I've been doing - what's that old a stitch in time thingy?
 
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Are these taken with the new camera? It's still winter here. A couple of crocus have peeked through the snow.

  4. Nothing like a new camera and a blog to make you start looking for nice light and color . . . your photos are terrific. Good luck on that proactive pruning ;)

  5. Dear Larry - all of your garden you've shown here looks wonderful. Isn't it exciting for us veggie gardeners to watch seedlings develop into veggie plants.

    It may be Fall here, but it all stays so green. Wellington is too "maritime" for snow over winter. Now, I must get my broad bean seeds planted this month for Springtime bean feasts in October/November.

    Down in the City Council's Botanic Gardens I noticed that the gardeners were preparing the tulip beds. Even as I head into winter there are already hints of springtime - not due here until Spetember.

    Life would be darn boring if it was always Summer!!!
