Footsteps Into Spring



It was a lovely weekend with temps in the upper 60’s and lots of sunshine, perfect weather for coaxing early bloomers.

The Muscari below will soon be yanked out in perhaps a vain attempt to discourage it and the Bethlehem Stars that always seem to find their ways into every garden. But the hellebores are a welcomed presence and they are looking very healthy.

The new brick pathways in the Secret Garden held up well during the winter.  I need to add more paving sand and bring in more edging rocks, but as soon as the soil warms up, I will start to put some edging plants in along its borders.

The old magnolia in the front is starting to show a little color.  I was in New York last week and all the magnolias in Central Park were blooming.  Lovely!
