As thought by magic the mud subsided and the crocuses appeared in all their glory. Not ravaged by squirrels these beauties last long enough to feed any passing bee.

Spring is coming slowly into the garden and finally it’s possible to actually do some work.

    Hello. I am desperately looking for a shrub called Lespedeza “Little Buddy”. Or clover bush or Lespedeza thunbergii. The Little Buddy name is important. I live in Burlington ON. Can anyone help me locate where to buy it? I have had no luck so far. Thanks

    Lovely. I’ve got primroses and bulbs coming up everywhere. I’m so happy I planted hundreds last year! Hope you had fun in Paris! I wanted to share my post with you today about my secret garden project…
