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.
