Why is it......?

...that the dandelions are growing like crazy but now much else is showing up in the garden yet?

Can you tell that I can hardly wait to get out there? Actually, some of the tulips are up and the garlic too, but still, nothing is growing like the weeds!

Happy Easter, everyone.

Gardener's law! I have lots of tulips, crocuses and daffs coming up, new growth on some daylilies and a very early peony starting. And weeds. LOTS of weeds!

How are you, Margaret? See you at the end of the month? I'm bringing my granddaughter with me this year!

Wow, your garden is way ahead, Marcia.

End of the month sounds great - weekend of the 28th?

That will be fun to have your granddaughter along, a gardener-in-training, perhaps?

Yes, the 28th. And she's definitely a gardener-in-training. She has her own little garden at my house and she also has petunias blooming on my windowsill already!

We had a week of incredibly warm weather in March and that kick-started a lot of things. I've never had crocuses blooming in March before!
