Peonies, rhododendron, hosta, lilies, daylilies …
In about two months one small area of my garden, near the patio, will look like this. The Rhododendron will be blooming with it’s large cherry red flowers, the hosta leaves will be in perfect shape as yet untouched by nasty slugs, and the peonies (karl Rosenfield) and day lilies will be preparing to bloom.
Spring, late spring and early summer are the time of year that I think I enjoy the garden the most. Almost every day there is something new to look at. During that time of year the plants are growing fast, and a plant that didn’t have flower buds one day suddenly seems to develop tiny flower buds almost over night.
A few of the plants in my garden have started to show signs that they are waking up. I can’t wait until several more plants come back to life and start to grow.
Who else is excited now that it’s spring?
