tulips

Come into my garden, my flowers want to meet you :)

It’s that time of year again when all the flowers are vying for attention.  Every which way you turn, there’s a splash of color here and a profusion of blooms there.  Ever since spring has sprung around these parts, the temperatures have fluctuated from pretty warm in the 80’s to fairly cooler days with clouds and drizzle.  I guess the latter has it’s upside as it makes spring last that much longer.  There’s nothing worse than going from winter to summer with no spring-like weather in between.  I have a pretty small urban garden since we’ve downsized, but I spend a lot of time trying to make it a more welcome patch for us, the pollinators and our fine-feathered friends.  There’s nothing  more satisfying for me than to sit on the back patio and watch the birds dive-bomb to the feeders.  Recently,  a pair of mourning doves have set up home in our space, they seem unperturbed as I work around them.  Come with me, won’t you and take a look around at some of what has been blooming since March in our city garden.
