The wisteria and trumpet vines are pruned, awaiting the (explosive) Spring growth spurt. The asparagus bed is being cleaned up--there are already some enterprising weeds and acorn sprouts to pull, and the leaf mulch will be discarded. And....the bulbs are blooming! The warm 60+ degree weather has encouraged early performance. Delightful!
Does this mean that even global warming has its up-side?
The pictures below were taken February 21st. Note the changes from February 19th above...
Our weather continues to be warm and dry. Everything is in a hurry! Even standing ten feet away, I could detect the fragrance from the blooms. So cheerful!
Doesn't this make you smile?
