Southwest Spring

Today I will officially drag my water hoses out of storage and begin watering my outdoor plants. It is actually a little early but the weather has been too nice to ignore the signs of spring.

My Forsythia is now in bloom. It would be much prettier had we had our normal spring rains.

Hopefully this year, my lilacs will bloom in full glory as well as my Queen Ann's Lace and my other flowering bushes.

I love spring. I love when the trees start budding out their leaves and all the glorious colors of the flowers and flowering bushes brilliantly awaken from their long winter's sleep.

Today, I am going to go outside and sprinkle “angel drops” (aka water) on my sleeping plants.

Are you preparing for spring and summer? How?

  1. I live in the wrong hemisphere for spring! But yesterday I planted seeds and plants for the winter: cabbages, cauliflowers, Brussels sprouts, broad beans, peas, lettuce, celery, carrots, turnips, parsnips, beetroot, pak choi and silver beet (Swiss Chard). I think I like the winter vegies even better than summer ones! No flowers till spring, although the camellias are just starting to come out!

  2. I love flowers and spring, but I am preparing for spring by stocking up on some allergy medication, haha. 🙂 And bringing out my spring clothes! I love going outside in normal clothes and just a light jacket, spring is most definitely the best season!

I would love to read your thoughts...
