The Central Ohio Home and Garden Show was filled with many spring blooms to enjoy and to fill you with anticipation in what is just around the corner in our own spring gardens.
I always enjoy the displays of Begonia’s that are usually included in some of the displays. Maybe more so since I have a difficult time growing them in my containers.
I think I keep them too wet and the bulbs rot.
This little mass planting of crocus were reminders of early spring blooms.
Tulips and hyacinths of every color.
The plantings below were a mystery to me except for the Heuchera but I liked the pink frilly blooms and I did not have a clue as to the little shrub behind it.
Everyday I learn that there are so many plants that I just do not know about.
Tuesday it got up to 60 degrees so this girl got out there in the flower beds. The old oak leaves were raked up and the flower beds cleaned. The roses got a good pruning and all of the sticks from winter snows and windy days were raked up out of the yard. It was a satisfying feeling to have everything looking clean again not to mention some much needed exercise from the days efforts.
The pump water fountain was cleaned out once again.
It was perfect timing because we have had two days of rain now and two days of snow to come which hopefully this time of the year will be just a melted memory by the next day.
All of the rain is greening up the lawn and making the yard look new again taking away the hues of winter browns.
Join in for Fertilizer Friday with our hostess
Tootsie at “Tootsie Time” and Flaunt those Flowers.
Those of us who do not have blooms yet enjoy seeing yours.
