I enjoy looking at deciduous trees in the winter when there are no leaves to disguise their form and interesting bark. I enjoy the colors of fall. But, oh! Spring is upon us here in middle Georgia – we might even say it is half past spring - and it is truly wonderful.
It is a remarkable season with beauty and the promise of more to come in the garden. And I have to say that I have never enjoyed the season as much as I do living here on Elm Street. Of course, there may be an age factor which figures in here: Just being happy to be able to greet another spring. But the work of the eleven years we have put in here also figure in the pleasure Robert and I both derive from this place.
Words can get a bit trite when attempting to sing the glories of spring, so I’ve put together a photo essay of some of the wonders of this season here at Elm Street Gardens. There are roses, iris, evening primrose as well as vegetables and fruits. And, of course, there is the promise of the delights of the summer garden to come.
