I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Spring has finally made it to Walnut Grove.
Here’s what we are enjoying around our property:
Our daffodils (with their many varieties) are back once again. I want to plant more this fall, seeing how beautifully they grow each year!
Our snap peas look vigorous and are almost ready for a trellis to climb up.
We are hoping for lots of delicious raspberries this year. Last year we pulled off all of the blossoms in order to establish the plants. This year, we would love to eat them, Josh preferring his with half and half and sugar!
Someone’s building a nest! (house sparrows?)
Our spinach is off to a slow start. Hopefully the inch of rain we got last night will spur them on.
We planted a huge variety of tulips underneath our new crab apple tree. Unfortunately, the deer ate a bunch of the leaves and flowers. We quickly sprayed them after that mishap and are still expecting a show from the remaining ones.
Yesterday, Josh and I visited Frederick Meijer Gardens.
It was simply gorgeous with many of their bulbs in bloom:
The pot arrangements were stunning!
I’ve never seen that orange and cream kind of daffodil before, have you?
Enjoying our date!
Who would have thought to have a planter filled with bulbs?
My dream house…
The hyacinths’s scent was lovely!
And we’ve decided that we NEED hyacinths in our own garden. 🙂
This spells S-P-R-I-N-G
I’ll leave you with one final picture of a “before” that I’m almost finished with:
