It’s safe to say, spring is sprouting in our back garden.
Not far from a carcass of winter walnut, our the lilac bush is beginning to bud and grass is growing from the ash of last summer’s fire pit.
Our clay posts have wintered well–
–While back porch posts and polka dot pots need purple paint.
Pebbles from our garden path, look stunning in the spring time sun–
–While lettuce has begun to blossom–
Day lilies grace the muck and mud–
–While our garden gate still wonders why–
–Why Sara cut back the lemon grass.
Moss emerges amidst the grasses–
–And cacti creep along the path.
The gnome nooks nicely near the fence.
Our rose-bush boasts blossoms in the months to come–
–While solar lights line our garden gate.
There’s blue beyond the walnut tree–
And just beneath are bursts of green.
–And our fig tree budding in the sun.
After a day spent digging in the dirt, Sara puts up her muddy feet–
–Lucy begs to go indoors–
–And I go lock the garden gate.
Has green begun growing in your yard yet this March?
What’s your favorite part of spring time gardening?
