Spring is a time for reunions in the garden … ones I have been waiting for all winter. Reunions like…
Me and the Queen
I have had the Queen of Bourbon for more than 20 years. This rose can take a lot — even a bit of shade which is good because the tree near her is getting bigger!😁
It is a happy day when she starts blooming. Her bloom thyme is short, but that’s okay her beauty and fragrance make up for it. Welcome back old friend!
The pollinators can’t get enough of the Rugosas… neither can I.
Iris and Fish
These iris have been surrounding our little fish pond for years. I miss them when they are gone, so they are a very welcome sight.
Harison’s Yellow and Bird House
Mr. Harison has been in our garden for more than 25 years. The birdhouse joined him about three years ago, and together these guys add extra charm to the potting shed area. Good to have them back together! And, oh so good to see Mr. Harison again! Hum, looks like that birdhouse is gonna need a coat of paint before next year. Oh Mr. G! For more about Mr. Harison’s story, read on.
Are there “reunions” in your garden that you are
particularly excited for each year?
