I don’t know how it is where you live, but here the weather is a total roller coaster. One day warm, two days cold, snow in the morning, raining by the afternoon. Not unusual for March of course, but I’d love a little more stability.
On the nice days, the cats and I are outside as much as possible.
The cats are mostly just soaking up the sun. I do that too, but I’m also poking around the garden, and looking for signs of life.
More and more bulbs are peaking out in the bulb box, but they are still very small. To be honest, I think I placed the box a little too close to the fence. When I put it down the fall, it got a lot more sun than it does now.
Of course, the ground is still mostly frozen… all the up and down means it hasn’t had a chance to do a really good thaw yet.
Elsewhere, there are small signs of things to come.
Left to right: Sedum, Black-Eyed Susan, and Chysanthemums.
One thing that’s really going gangbusters are these.
Remeber back in the summer I mentioned that the catio ground was full of bulbs….? I was digging them up every time I dug a hole. Well pretty much the ENTIRE catio lawn space is covered in them. I’m pretty sure they are grape hyacinths. I vaguely recall seeing some in bloom when we first looked at the house last year.
Whatever there are – there are literally thousands of them. And they are all going to have to come out, because I’m landscaping that entire space. There’s a lot of digging in my future.
