I took these pictures of the garden on Friday, it was sunny and clear and very springlike. Now as I'm typing this it has turned chilly and we are getting a much needed down pour of rain. Such is the world of blogging.
So many volunteer seedlings coming up and filling in the empty spaces in my back perennial bed.
I am way behind in my garden clean up and spring plantings. Usually by the end of February I have a pretty good show of new flowers surrounded by fresh mulch. Not this year.
I don't know why I haven't gotten the urge. Maybe it's because we never really had a winter so the need for spring flowers doesn't feel as urgent.
Whatever the reason, I am thankful that these pretty annuals didn't wait for me and showed up all on their own. Daisies, cilantro, cosmos and larkspur dotting the beds...
I'm hoping to play catch up in the next week or two and I'll be sure to share a few photos along the way. What about you, are you in the planning or planting stage? Or is your garden already bursting forth with blooms?
