"Possibility and promise greet me each day as I walk out into my garden. My vigor is renewed when I breathe in the earthiness and feel the dirt between my fingers. My garden is a peaceful spot to refresh my soul." Meems

Glorious Spring!

























There is SO much happening in the garden daily! Each day brings a new surprise or unexpected wonder as the glories of spring unfold. I hope you are venturing into the beauty of this marvelous season as often as possible. I know I wish I had even more time to be in the garden! This week I'm snatching up bits and pieces of time and looking forward to the next time I can spend a whole day snipping, pulling, planting, potting ...

Sun kissed plants, colorful flowers and butterflies. Good to see you welcoming your spring with wide open arms.

Great Caladium. Fabulous Shell Ginger flowers. Stunning stand of Stromanthe sanguinea and that clump of Begonia flowers are just magnificent. Your spring garden is wonderful.

Oh, Meems! Your garden looks absolutely stunning! I'm looking forward to my agapanthus blooming like yours! Thanks for making my morning!

Darla said...

Just beautiful Meems. I have an Agapanthus bud. Going to be a bit chilly tonight..

I live south of you in Fort Myers. Becasue we are in a draught and I don't have an irrigation system, our spring is delayed until the rains come. thanks for sharing.

I adore your lush garden ... and so do the butterflies...so peaceful looking. I am still looking for spring to move forward..the heat wave we had in March was followed by freezing temps in April and the garden has slowed to just some daffs and hyacinths...no leaves on the trees yet

I love your garden....soon our Caladiums and tropicals will perk up again:) Once our ground warms up, things start popping up:) Nice shots....and I love your butterflies.

Your tropical garden is looking lush and full like it's mid-summer! This is a glorious spring indeed.

the best time of year - just before the hot and muggy summer weather hits. we are heading into our "winter" season which i just love.

Missy said...

As the temperatures drop here and my caladiums go to sleep for Winter I'll know where to find some. Your garden is looking wonderful.

Andrea said...

Hi Meems, i still remember how your garden looks like last year, the different caladiums, the impatiens which are previously unwanted but later on loved, etc, etc, the basis of my saying "if i will have a garden, it must be like Meems' Hoe and Shovel. Now it's up again. While you are in your spring, ours are mostly in dormancy to be alive again when the rainy season arrive, after this extreme heat at 34C still going up.
