Tulips! Crabapple blossoms! These photos capture the beauty of spring in my garden. But I have to confess that they were taken last year, and not by me.
My friend Jan Tenney visited my garden last May and snapped a few photos. She dropped them by last week, and they make me so excited for spring.
The garden will look very different this year. By next week I will be ready to post pictures of the newly completed front steps. They just need a couple of finishing touches before their photo op.
I'm looking forward to posting pictures of the rennovated west garden as well. We removed all the grass, put a flagstone path down the center, and I transplanted perennials to make matching borders down each side of the path. We also added a 3.5 foot tall (just over a meter) basalt column at the entry to the path.
I will have to post about our revamped sprinkler system, too. It should be much more efficient, and I am looking forward to less hand watering this summer.
But meanwhile, just enjoy Jan's spring photos. Aren't they delicious?
