I just love spring and when all of the garden is coming alive.
The grass turns a beautiful green that is not seen at any other time during the year. Some how it looks greener and brighter to me at least. Or is it that we long so to see green again after a hard winter that it makes us think it is greener.
Daffodils that were planted last fall are popping up along the woodland bed and tulips are growing fast now that we have had some warm days. The primroses are getting some new leaves and so is the pulmonaria and heuchera’s.
The fruit trees will soon be blooming in the neighborhood along with the Red Bud trees along the highways.
This is time of the year when all things come alive again, even this winter bound gardener.
What makes spring so welcome more than beautiful blooming shrubs. I have a small yard but there are some shrubs that can fit into any landscape. I have a few scattered around in my garden beds such as rhododendron, azalea, magnolia and lilacs which can be pruned to fit any size garden. Here are some beauties from the Garden Show.

We have been blessed with a few beautiful days in the sixties so I have been doing more cleaning up outdoors.
The winter decorations have been put away and the spring ones now grace the front porch.
Spring arrives Saturday and I am so glad to see it arrive even if they are trying to discourage us all with threats of more snow next week. The only consultation is knowing at this time of the year it will not be staying around long.
Today is Fertilizer Friday so join us with Tootsie at
“Tootsie Time” in Flaunting some of your Spring blooms.
Since I do not have any as yet in my garden I am using these last pictures from the Central Ohio Home & Garden Show.
I am sure everyone is getting tired of all the Garden Show pictures by now so it is a timely ending to them.
What spring blooming shrubs are your favorites?
Everyone Have a Wonderful Weekend
and Happy Spring Gardening.
