And Spring is in the air. Redbuds and pear blossoms herald the new season. Just in time for Sunday's open house. We have had a couple of showings last week and have learned how to clean up in a hurry.I am hoping the garden will be an irresistible clincher to the sale...and not an overwhelming task to a novice gardener. Actually this is the easiest garden I have ever planted. Mostly because it was all ready for me this year. No heavy lifting, no concrete blocks to move and not too many bags of soil to buy. Just plants, lots and lots of plants. What makes a great garden? Money! (but who's counting?)
There will not be any tomatoes, green beans, peppers or squash in this garden. Sigh. But at least there will be basil.
And one more shot from the back yard..the Celeste fig is the first to sprout leaves and would you believe, a tiny figlet too? Who knew?
