"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 ...

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

Again I find myself apologizing for the word verification. I've tried several times to keep it off. When it is off I am inundated with spam. I've gotten emails that folks aren't able to leave a comment and yet there are comments that show up. Thank you to those who try and to those who do leave comments. I appreciate every one who visits, even those who only read and come here for the photos.
Have a blessed day!
Meems
