Spring is here! Although you wouldn't know it from the near-freezing
temperatures and snow flurries I saw this morning. There are several
signs of spring around my garden, though. I've seen a lot more bird and
squirrel activity, and my tulips have sprouted! I planted these Queen of
the Night tulips back in November, and on March 10 saw the first signs
of them sprouting.
I took this last picture two days ago, and you can see the tulip leaves starting to unfurl. I can't wait to see these pretty dark purple flowers in my garden. I planted Queen of the Nights a few years ago with some red tulips, but this year I may add a different type of flower to fill in the gaps, maybe in yellow or cream. I haven't had much time lately to write about my garden plans, I've been busy with work and am probably going to start a new job soon which may mean longer work days for me. I'm aiming for a low-maintenance garden this year, and I also want more flowers in my garden. I think more flowers may attract more pollinators, which could then help the veggie plants.
