I hung a large basket of Fuchsia on the porch. It is a lovely flower.
The Hummingbirds love it, me too.
It is early for planting out tropicals.
I was told our last danger of frost is now April 15th.
It has always been May 1st.
Climate change has come to my gardens to stay.
The ants have arrived to help in their unfoldment.
They like Nicotiana.
I planted a dozen plants in the west window box.
I like seeing the hummers up close
while I sit at the kitchen table or stand at the sink.
The Crown Imperials are in bloom.
They are lovely and help to deter the moles from tunneling near them.
I would need to naturalize these bulbs all over the lawn and in all the flowers beds.
They only turn the moles aside to tunnel elsewhere.
Hanging baskets make for nice nest spots
and sweet berries, close by for easy nibbling, while sitting on the eggs.
Her name is Annabelle.
She is cleaned up now and her base will get fresh paint.
These first two weeks of April have been too warm.
I hope this cool down stays.
I have many cool season vegetables that are just now sprouting.
Many of the May flowers are blooming.
The Rhododendron is in bloom
and the azaleas are in bud.
Dogwood blooms make nice umbrellas for tiny folk.
I started planting the deck boxes.
The large lavender pots are beginning to harden off on the porch
before they face the full southern sun.
Summer and Spring are colliding.
I need rainy days.
I need cool April showers.
