EARLY MORNINGS AND SPRINGTIME

An update from my garden. Some flowers have started to bloom, others are still tiny seedlings.

I had to move the greenhouse to a sunnier location after the red currant bush started to bloom an stole all the sun from the greenhouse beside it. The apple and pear tree are blossoming. When I stretch after our morning jogging routine, I look on up on both trees. What a lovely way to start the day.

1st floor in the greenhouse.  Different varieties of sweet pea ready to be planted outdoors next week.

We planted the parsley from seeds last spring and it has survived with an average of -5 to -15 ° minus during the winter months. The thyme in front we bought at a garden center last summer. A bit small to have steady access to thyme. Bushy oregano behind it, a couple of years old.

A cutback salvia, helps prevent sore throats and colds during winter.

The radish seedlings.

Four rows of rucola and four rows of radish, ideal for an early harvest.

Carrot seedlings.

Salad mix seedlings.

The apple mint finally recovering from last falls cutback. The color,texture, scent and taste are so delicate. My favorite mint!

Bleeding hearts in bloom.

Sunny morning.

Wire totally ruins the idyllic scenery.

Pear tree in bloom.

Clematis. A slow bloomer, I have been waiting for the flowers to open since forever.

He’s such a doll.

3rd floor in the green house. The rock is necessary so the wind don’t get the light weighted green house.

Pear tree.

Pansies in the rusty tin can. Left it outside over winter, made drainage holes with a nail and a hammer, and you have the cheapest flower-pot of the season!

Some wild daffodil related plant growing wild in the garden.
