Garden 337

A cottage garden in an urban setting

March 15, Bloom Day

Well, it’s not exactly a bloom day since nothing at all is blooming.  But there are little signs that the earth will warm and the plants will bloom.  Over the winter I enjoyed seeing birds come to the feeders.  For some reason lots of cardinals decided to dine with me on a regular basis.  And, that intense red became my winter blooms.

About Me

I haven’t always been a gardener, but I have always loved gardens. It has taken 16 years to get my gardens into the shape they are today. And, I’ve had help. I’m 74 years old, have rheumatoid arthritis, and had a late stage cancer six years ago. I am, though, intrepid. I’m the kind of person who plods along, tailoring my goals as I go. Last November I had a long overdue knee replacement surgery and I’m hoping this spring, summer, and fall will be able to maintain and find even more joy working in all of my garden beds. Full disclosure, though. I have a garden guy who comes once a week to work in my gardens.
