Springtime on The Farm

The Farm is bursting with growth and color. Spring has finally – although rather slowly – begun. We had such a long and hard winter that many bushes and shrubs are behind in leafing out and I may have lost quite a few items to the harsh winter conditions. Thankfully, not everything needed to be replaced and I am excited to see many blooms and plants growing!

My asparagus has always been a very healthy patch and this year is no different. I love using the fresh stalks on crudité platters or just roasted with meals.

Hopefully you are following the gardening series and as you can see, the garden is progressing quite nicely. The radish will need to be thinned soon and I will need to start weeding immediately!

The numerous tulips are late but blooming beautifully. I love all the various colors and varieties. And my favorite shrub – snowball viburnum – is about to be full of glorious white blooms. Often mistaken for a hydrangea, this shrub is amazing and rustic!

My fern leaf peonies are full of magenta and pink blooms and the herbaceous peonies are sprouting.

If you remember the new “iris flower bed” I put in last fall with plants from my great grandma’s farm, the iris plants are really taking off and I can’t wait to see them bloom this year!

I love using boxwood shrubs in many of my planters around The Farm. Some can weather the winter while others I transplant in the fall to various locations where I want them to live permanently.

My porch hanging pots have been planted with simple red sweet potato vines and euphoria (breathless) in the middle.

I love the smell of fresh-cut grass and the sight and full flower pots in the spring. There’s so much work to be done, but it is so nice after hibernating all winter! I hope you are all inspired to work outdoors and beautify your own yards. Happy spring!
