Spring color, in an edible garden
After nearly a half-inch of rain last night, it’s an absolutely beautiful morning outside. I couldn’t resist a quick stroll through the garden, camera (and coffee) in hand. Here is a bit of what I saw:
Purple puffs of blooms are topping all the chives in the garden.
I planted two clumps of 'Redventura' celery last year, and then mostly ignored them. The plants happily survived our mild winter, and are looking better than ever. Definitely a good choice for ornamental vegetable gardens.
The 'Bright Lights' chard also over-wintered with no trouble, and is now getting ready to flower. Check out the color on that flower stalk!
The strawberries are ripening, and the catbirds are back in town. If I want to eat another berry, I'm going to have to take some defensive action.
The garden sage is just about to explode into bloom. I can't wait!
I can't resist including one more photo of the chive flowers. Such cheerful little poofs of blooms. I'm already thinking of more places for chives in the garden...
And, that’s how the garden looks this morning. What’s blooming, sprouting and surprising you in your garden?
