Come walk around the garden with me
Morgan’s up for a little walk, she’s not impressed by the glorious ranunculus at the kitchen door, I am, how about you?
On the back patio I’ve started cleaning out and replanting the blue pots; so far this year in hot pink and red geraniums.
Most of you know I call C “Clover”. So she loves clover and has chosen to grow this beautiful little plant in its own special blue pot.
Guess what I found in the very back of the garden, in last year’s forgotten carrot pot. Brand new, sweet and crispy carrots. The pot needed to be emptied and cleaned so the carrots had to be harvested, but what a little treasure we got for tonight’s salad.
In the back flower garden the muscari have gone a bit crazy. This year I’ve been giving clumps to friends and relatives.
Milo likes to guard the hole in the hedge where the aggressive orange cat sometimes sneaks thru. Not on his watch!
Here are the trilliums from the shade garden. I’m not sure how everyone else feels but to me there’s something so romantic and special about them. Such a fragile West Coast plant and so protected that you rarely see it in the wild. Mine did not come from the wild; they came from my late aunt’s garden.
But the star of my early April garden is the camellia tree. Almost as tall as the house, with flowers the size of side plates, it never gets rusty in the rain, never drops its buds, and blooms its little heart out for me.
I’m sorry but I do own the most beautiful camellia in the world! Ok, in Vancouver then…ok, in my hood.
Thanks for coming with me. 🙂 See you tomorrow.
