In my little corner of N.J. Spring has sprung – finally! Looks like our cold nights are finally gone and we’re setting into some nice mellow temps for a bit, or at least I hope. Everything is crazily lush after a week of rain and my garden couldn’t be happier!
No clue how this tulip landed in this spot but I like it! My guess would be a squirrel. They also have a tendency to move Jerusalem artichoke around, it’s pretty, but irritating.
Mama Robin has built her nest in a pretty perfect spot – sheltered from the rain and warm against the brick. I’m hoping no one is kicked out of the nest or I’ll be raising another baby bird this spring (last year I raised a cardinal that was found in my sons school parking lot. Named her Peeper and she’s back this year!).
Teeny tiny columbine that I really need to move to the front of the garden at this point. The only way I ever see it is if I’m weeding and I occasionally only remember it once it’s gone to seed.
Unknown species nesting in the red maple…
One of the dogs tree’ed a turkey. He was very proud of himself…
I like to let things go to seed and these lovelies obligingly come up year after year…
And finally she can relax on the lawn for a bit!
Happy Spring everyone! Take time to enjoy it!
