I spend a fair amount of time checking the weather app and looking out the window for that point in the day when I can pull on my walking shoes and head outside. The time will change this weekend and the days will be getting longer. That is good news for mid-day gardening and afternoon walking.
There are bits of color popping up in the yard. These crocus bulbs must have been planted more than 15 years ago but there was ivy covering this part of the yard and I forgot they were there. That ivy had become invasive and was threatening the health of a tree so I spent a few weeks digging it out last summer. Seeing these little purple flowers was a surprising reward for that hard work.
We had a few beautiful days last week and I made time to do a bit more pruning and weeding. Those first days in the garden are always a bit overwhelming – so many things to do. But it was a good start and I have a better idea of what comes next. Now, off to do some online, curbside pick-up shopping so I can take advantage of a mild weather week.
