I have returned from the balmy trade winds and eternal summer of Maui to a delicate spring in Ohio. Not that it will last, but the beauties of soft watercolor clouds and newly awakened buzzing bees in the warmth of beginning spring season are delightful. There is a special freshness to the air at this time of year, here; after all the cold and washing rains. It was the best welcome my home could give me.
I’ve been inspecting the yard to see what is blooming and how everything fared through the winter. I really do need to begin my weeding if the dreams of renovation are to become reality. I never did get to that front garden. It is a frightful task that awaits me there! But other parts of the garden are less daunting and I am planning what I most want to focus on this season.
Unfortunately the year has been unusually wet so far and there is no tilling up the garden until we dry out a bit. I would have liked a first till by now, but that is not going to be….
The tulips and daffodils are well up and they should soon brighten the yard up considerably- the viburnums are also showing bud. I may just scrape aside some of the leaf cover in the veggie garden to put in a bit of lettuce- I think I can do that without fully digging the soil.
