Much To Be Done

Before I will get to sit down in these there is much to be done! The official start of Spring is in a few days and I have a lot to do... the weather here today is far from Spring like, wind, rain and a little chilly.
The green house is in need of a redo, clutter removed, plants trimmed, repotted, fed and soon moved to their spring locations. Many of our plants spend the winter in the green house and then come out to enjoy Spring.
The birds know, they know what to do... the garden has been full of busy birds lately and the nest building is under way. We have two families of Nut Hatch building in a couple of the garden bird houses. We have a bird friendly garden and they gift us with their songs and beauty.
We spent the morning (in the rain) mulching the entire garden. All kinds of perennials are starting to return and the For-get-me-nots and Wild Violets are already blooming!
The garden is changing every day, the grass is growing and greening up, the trees and shrubs have all begun to bud. The gardens time to rest is over and so is mine! Happy Spring Everyone and Happy Gardening!

I spent a few minutes raking the leaves off of a couple of beds. Underneath was a lot of "wet" yet. The few new sprouts were still very tender and easily damaged, so I wandered helplessly looking for something else to do.

I DEFINITELY have spring fever!

So glad to hear the signs of spring are happening for you. Gives me hope. It snowed here again yesterday. Even cold weather blubs have been late and less abundant this year.

Yay!!! There's so much to do, I don't know what to do! But I've never been more grateful for Spring. It's rainy and windy and still a bit cold here...Pacific Northwest, keeps us mossy and green ;) Happy gardening.
Happy Spring ;)
