Back to the Garden

DSC_0285

I have been away from the garden for quite awhile and as everyone knows what that means, weeds, weeds and more weeds.  The photo is of just one small patch.

Plants need to be cut back for spring growth.  There is plenty of work to do.

The new rose was not put into the ground, but is still alive and greeted me with a bloom.

The Automatic Garden did its job and flowered on its own.  The reliable Salvias are loaded with blooms, ready for the arrival of hummingbirds and bees.

The Butterfly Weed is sending out its seeds and the Marigolds that were just tiny seedlings are blooming.  The bulbs have bloomed and shrubs are sporting flowers.

The biggest surprise was the Tassel Flower that I have struggled with for two years.  It has formed two colonies of the plant.  Maybe sometimes it is better not to be around to baby the plants and let the Automatic Garden do its thing.

    Lots blooming–you’re probably like us with our non-winter. There’s always plenty to do in a garden….

    Beautiful! And how wonderful that so much of it grows automatically! I would say you planned this out well.

  4. An automatic garden sounds divine to me. I’m glad you got a wonderful surprise.
