Over the weekend I finally had a chance to walk around and see what new growth (if any) was going on in the garden and the woods. We haven't been able to do much work on the garden just yet, but we do have a few boxes laid out for containing our vegetables. We still have quite a few boards left to paint then assemble, a fence to construct, and some stone to place so it's still very much a work in progress. A few weeks ago we did manage to plant some lettuce seeds, so I'm hoping that is what I saw shooting up in the garden.
I have been so amazed with how well our herbs survived and even thrived through the winter months. I haven't checked them out lately, so I was shocked to see how much the thyme had spread.
I noticed the sage still holding strong and the mint just starting to make a comeback.
Excited with the state of the edible plants, I went to see how the rest of the garden was doing. I saw some encouraging signs of growth - shoots of bright green from bulbs popping out of the ground (lilies I think?) and some of our sedum coming back in full force.
Over by the creek I saw a few of the trees were finally showing some green as well.
This winter has been too long for my taste so it really did my soul good to see some signs of spring around the yard. Everything has been so brown out here lately that it is thrilling to finally be seeing some green. I was in such a spring-y mood I decided to give my header an update as well :)
What's going on in your garden lately?
