The petals are popping and the juice of spring is coursing through my veins like so many shots of espresso. The spring garden is a party not to be missed, and just to sit at my computer to post this blog, rather than be out with the surging sap and sunshine, is requiring a strong dose of discipline on my part.
But I do love to share the garden, as well as read and see what other gardeners are up to. So, here is a quick little harvest basket of photos from my garden here in Northern California, before I head back outside to the music of birdsong and the fluttering of butterfly wings.
I’m tagging along with the Six On Saturday posts from gardeners around the world today, where we share six photos from our gardens. Will I manage to keep it to six? Hmmm…. we’ll see. Gratitude to “The Propagator” and all the other gardeners who share. Whether you are a gardener or just finding something to browse while waiting at the dentist office or on a work break, hope it is enjoyable!
I. Apple Blossoms
II. Kerria Japonica “Pleniflora”
III. Flowering Crabapple
IV. Asian Pear Blossoms
V. Akebia Quinata aka Chocolate Vine
VI. All the others that I can’t fit in, so I’m cheating for #sixonsaturday 🙂
Wishing love, peace and freedom to all, with special prayers for Ukraine.

Coming soon: an adventure with a Pipevine Swallowtail Butterfly, plus, the new garden paths are done!
P.S. Everyone’s asking: Is it time to plant out tender summer veggies yet? Not for us (we are in a low-spot micro-climate). We sometimes get a frost during April or even during the full moon of May. After that, it’s full steam ahead!
