In The Garden - April 26, 2022

The local weatherman is fairly certain that last night's frost warning was the last of the season. I hope he's right. Otherwise, I might be jumping the gun just a tad too early, but that's okay. I'm enjoying the long spring and have been busy in the garden regardless.

The hummers are back, so I started the morning by refilling the new hummingbird feeder with fresh nectar

I transplanted petunias...the red, white, and blues into a hanging basket and a variety of striped and spotted into a wooden planter box. 

Silas brought his tiller over yesterday afternoon and tilled up two flower beds for me along the south side of the house. I planted a variety of sunflower seeds in one; poppies, bachelor's buttons, and marigolds in the other.

I got the herbs planted in the herb wheel (sage, rosemary, thyme, eucalyptus, and basil). While there I dead-headed the chives that are already thriving.

I found a morel mushroom when weed-eating along the back fencerow this morning. I had cut it in half before I realized what I had, but I salvaged it and will have it with my supper tonight.

Zinnias are sprouting up in the garden and in the flower beds along the front porch.

The first purple irises of the season are in bloom. These are the ones that my Aunt Linda Lemmons loved so much. They serve as a memorial and remembrance of her each spring. 

The lilacs and flowering trees are in bloom and the garden is abuzz with pollinators of all kinds.

It's a lovely spring and I'm looking forward to enjoying more of it. 

That's some of what's going on in my garden. What's going on in yours?

Until next time...
