On my many treks out to the patio garden each day, I peer closely at the soil looking for something new. And just about every day I find something.
I got the Johnny Jump Ups planted yesterday.
The Lamb’s Ear is growing rapidly. I’ve cut out all the brown and left the soft velvety leaves to grow.
If you have children or grandchildren, I’m sure they’d love the Lamb’s Ear because it’s soft as a bunny’s ear when you rub the leaves between your fingers.
Right now it’s probably the alliums below that are visibly growing taller each day.
Looks like I should have a good patch of them through the summer.
I saw that one of the wild Morning Glories had already marked its spot. Those things grow like weeds in my pots.
But the bright purple color of the blooms are quite lovely.
I’m not planting the daisies for a week or so. Until I think the last freeze is past us.
I’ll just tend to them over on the table by the back of the apartment. And bring them in if need be.
What is the current status of your garden space? Are you seeing the progress of spring weather yet?
