The scents coming from the garden right now are nothing short of heavenly.
all ten of the crabapple trees are blooming!
The most fragrant and earliest to bloom are the Centurians.
I have three in a row in the rear garden and so when I walk out my backdoor this is what I see.
They, along with the seven Canada Red chokecherries
just fill the garden with the most wonderful scents you can imagine.
Usually the lilacs bloom the same time but they are a little late this year.
It will be a few more days until I will be enjoying them.
this deep pink to a very soft pink today. I won't be including photos of their
pretty pastel pink for a few days since I was just able to take a few today
and haven't re-sized them yet.
The bees are really working these trees and you can hear the buzzing the
minute you go out the door.
and it is the best kind of tired I know.
I'm a very unorganized gardener. I flit from one thing to the next.
It seems to be my way, and it works for me since my motto is...
No time is wasted while gardening. Every task needs doing whether it's done today
My husband just wishes I would get the mulching done so he can use his trailer again :)
and accomplish things before the frosts quit coming. I'm still dividing perennials and transplanting them and even cutting out the dead canes in the roses.
I wanted to share a bouquet of daffodils I managed to cut just a day before we had a rain
and get a few photos of them.

I know that so many of you have gone through a very difficult Winter, weather-wise this year
and are happy to see the spring come. I am always happy to have spring show up, but have to admit
that I really loved my winter this year. I am learning to really enjoy the slower pace of winter
and the soul-searching that happens during that time of year for me.
I need it to center myself and reset my brain.
Since I live in an area where because of weather (and because I live in the sticks),
I have to slow down, it affords me
this opportunity and I'm grateful for it.
With all that said---I am happy to have a new season to embrace and
to 'go a little crazy in'!
