Spring Gardening

The sunshine warms my face as I begin spring clean-up around the lavender farm. Not sure if the seasons are changing where you are, but for us it is coming on a bit early this year. The first place I start is in the wildflower section. The warmer weather promotes new growth quickly, and there’s still a lot of dead flower stems, and grass that need to go. I do this ‘Carefully‘, not to step on the many little ‘Sweet William’, Hollyhock, Columbine, & Shasta Daisy’s.

This is also the time I dig out a few hundred small Lupine starts. I love Lupine, as you can see, and we go crazy in Lupine!!! It can take over if It’s left unattended. I hope to grow a few hybrid varieties this year in color shades of Yellow and Red :-O !! These wildflowers are not for upick, they are just for everyone to enjoy, smell, and listen to the hum of Bumblebees enjoying the wild life. I think I will enjoy a warm cup of Lavender Chai Tea when I take my break (with a spot o’honey, of course). Happy Gardening!

    We thought spring was on its way, until today, it was snowing when we woke up!!!
