“Spring flowers are nature’s most fragrant charms.” — Angie Weiland-Crosby
According to the calendar, spring is officially here. March can be finicky – hence the snowfall we had earlier in the month – but it seems that we are moving in the direction of warmer weather. Nature seems to be in concert with us as we renew ourselves from the grey of winter.
Before the 14th century, spring was called Lent in Old English. It was the time of the year when plants started springing from the ground. After a century, the season was referred to as spring-time and later on shortened to “spring.” Hear, hear!
Hold the Easter basket fun, and start planting instead!
Snap to it!
Snapdragons bloom early, and are often the first plants to spring above ground. Because they can stand a light frost, you don’t have to worry about unpredictable weather days. Put these on your list to plant in late winter next year.
Ahhh, the bunnies are back. Make your own ivy bunny by purchasing the forms at any craft store. You now have a use for all of the wild ivy in your yard! Easter is late this year (April 17), but you can be early with a unique centerpiece.
Depending on your circumstances, you might not have a yard for planting. No worries, since there are lots of interesting containers to add verve to a spring garden. Plant a variety of blooms for a modern dish garden feel or fill one pot with an assortment of herbs for summer cooking.
