I thought I would include a few images to update everyone on the progress and maturity of our garden. It’s actually quite amazing in three years with some care and attention how nature flourishes, even on a newer landscape.
This spring has been toggling between quite warm and quite cool. Not a lot of rain, but the plants are coming up beautifully nonetheless. I love this time of the year because of how fertile and lush the garden looks. All of the new growth adds a vibrant green to the existing palette. Everything is fresh and in bloom, not yet fatigued by summer heat.
One of our designers forwarded me this link for The Well Appointed House. They have some beautiful planter boxes to pick from and you can order them online. Take a look at their Patio and Garden section.
No matter where you live, this spring has been anything but usual. I’ve been on the planet 54 years and I don’t recall ever experiencing summer in March like we did this year. Temperatures were more like mid-June one week and then like February the next. Even nature is confused, as is evidenced in this shot I took outside my kitchen window of robins sitting like still plump statues on a branch in mid–January. In our neck of the woods, robins are the first sign of spring and never seen in January.
