Spring is finally here! What a tease it has been this year. But now, new, young leaves have begun to show on the shrubs,
creeping phlox is blooming,
tulips are blooming, and are well worth the price to have a few in the garden.
I planted the beginnings of an iris walk, and I can't wait to see if my efforts pay off.
The grass needs mowing (ugh), but the asparagus is fresh and super yummy. This is the first year I've been able to harvest them, and they are better than I ever expected!
The late cold snap damaged a lot of my roses. Most are recovering, but I'm quite worried about a few of my old garden teas. We'll just have to wait and see how they fare. But as always, the garden is full of sweet surprises.
I think my peonies are going to bloom this year! Peony blooms in Texas! How exciting!
