Spring Fever (warnng - lots of pics!)
OK, I'm getting itchy now - no sprouts and I am ready for them! The perennials are waking up, but I still want my sprouts!!!
So, I've got nothing to do but reminisce on gardens past, and I will gladly drag you all down memory lane with me! LOL!
I've been WSing for 6 years now; my first year was the winter of 2001-2002. I can't express to you how WS soothed my soul that year. And I still think that garden - my first - is the prettiest one I've had.
One of my favorite pics from that year:
Went a little petunia-crazy!
A bit more of my 2002 jungle -
I made a lot of mistakes that year - like tossing plants that seemed to die, not knowing they were perennials going dormant. But I've gotten better over the years.
By 2003, things were looking pretty good - I was totally hooked on WS and wanting every plant I laid my eyes on.
Didn't matter that I could barely walk around out there. Got my first fig that year, too ...
Hey, I'm a gardener!! Whoo Hoo!
In 2004, we went a bit cottage-y:
or something ...
Whatever you'd call that style, I love it!
In 2005, I FINALLY got bulbs to grow for me and this lily was a beaut (alas, it did not survive the winter):
By now, since I got smarter about perennials, things are getting a even more jungly out there, Hard to find places to put your feet:
So, we arrive at 2006. Probably my second best garden; hard to pick a fav.
Maybe this one?
or this magnificent merlin?
Hmmm, kinda like them all! Wonder what 2007 will bring?
Hope you enjoyed the trip!
