Last summer, my Japanese painted fern really struggled in the dry weather. I carted water down to it from the rain barrel quite a bit, but I never seemed to water it enough. I worried all winter I had killed it. It originally came from my Aunt Loretta’s garden and I didn’t know how to tell my Uncle Peter I’d killed it. Thankfully, I’m spared from that.
The pink dogwood is getting ready to open up too. More things are opening up every day and things are getting greener around here. The seeds I planted in March are popping up, both the greens I planted in the garden and the seed trays I started in the sunroom.
What plants are you happy to see coming up?
