Spring is hinting of its arrival. I saw the sprouts of tulip Fosteriana ( I know that is where it is planted) and the crocus bulbs. Even some of the perennials were greening up. There are a few residual streaks of snow where it had drifted particularly deep, but almost all of it is gone.
The catkins decorate the hazels, and I am looking forward to the viburnums, which only have tight buds at this time. This time of year is always a deceiver of my senses. Emotionally I feel like spring has arrived, as if it would glide easily into my garden, but intellectually I know that the Ohio climate holds many more cold days ahead and likely has more snow, as well.
This is the time to be pruning, especially fruit trees, but this year the garden goes on hold again, at least until after the wedding.
I need to firm up the flower choices and place orders pretty soon. Time is on the march…..
