The Spring Garden

May 9th, 2019

I’m sure you’re enjoying the photos from our trip to France, but I’m taking a break to show you what’s going on around the gardens here. The spring garden, as I’m calling it, under the old apple tree is starting to come together. Last year I transplanted lots of crocuses, snowdrops, and scillas from various areas about the garden into this area. The goal is to have this be the place where all the tiny spring bulbs live.


Since it’s right by the front door, it’s the perfect spot for a spring garden. The old apple tree doesn’t leaf out until the bulbs have bloomed and have absorbed enough sunlight to expand and increase their numbers.


Naturally, whenever I’m trying to take a photos I get cat bombed. Here, Littles thought her legs were much prettier than those snowdrops.


I plan on adding a few more bulbs to this area this coming fall. Perhaps a few different varieties of snowdrops and crocuses and maybe a few tiny daffodils. I may even look around for a few early primroses and other very early spring blooming plants to nestle into this garden.

What’s your favorite early blooming plant/bulb?
