The beds are weeded and edged, mulch is in place and tulips are in full bloom. The annual planting season is fast approaching. As a matter of fact, I began annual planting yesterday, containers and hangers were planted last week. At Fairview, I like to edge the beds around the clubhouse with begonias, currently with the late arrival of spring here in the Northeast, the tulips are residing in the begonia location (usually the tulips have past by Mother’s Day with the exception of the Northwest side of the Clubhouse). Luckily, in the fall I planted the tulip clumps a bit farther apart than I usually do, leaving enough room to sneak the begonia between the tulips. Yes, I plant new tulips annually around the clubhouse in the fall. Each year I can’t wait to get planting, and each year I can’t wait to be DONE PLANTING. Its a love/hate relationship I have with planting. I LOVE that the weather is warm enough for these tender beauties, however, I can’t wait to done planting flat after flat of annuals. The ever changing aspect of gardening keeps me engaged and challenges both my mind and body. HAPPY PLANTING!!!
I have added a few ‘how to videos’ I took earlier in the season and a photo gallery tab, so look for the new pages, up next to my contact page.
