Spring is really springing. It is cold, and periodically wet. There is hail, and winds, and some days it looks like winter is coming back with a vengeance, but it’s just a temporary illusion. We are definitely winning. The tulips are out, the late daffodils too (the earlies are packing up already), and blossom is well, blossoming. It is all burgeoning, as Carol Klein would rightly say. I love it all, but I think I love the greens the most.
It’s raining. It’s been raining all day, and it was raining all yesterday. In fact it feels like it’s been raining since about 1996, but I’m pretty sure that can’t be true. Either way, the ground is saturated, and there is standing water in the lowest part of the garden.
