Spring is Sprouting

Happy first day of Spring! Even though this winter has been incredibly mild in Michigan I am so excited for Spring to be here. Before I left on my trip things were sprouting up everywhere in my garden and I thought I'd share a little bit of it.

It always amazes me how my perennials just spring back to life when the warm weather comes. Along my back bed I have daffodils popping up all over and that will probably bloom while I am gone. My lavender plant is on its third year in my herb garden and has become pretty large. It has developed a lot of new foliage so far this season. My rosemary is also looking strong and healthy and the oregano is growing like crazy. The chives are just starting to poke up and I am thinking about whether or not I should divide them.

It is so exciting to watch nature wake up in the spring and I can't wait to see how things are growing when I get home. I just hope some of the daffodils are still blooming!

How are things looking in your garden this spring? Have you had a rough or mild winter? How has your winter affected your plants?

We had a very mild winter in southern Ontario (Guelph) and I can hear the tulips and daffodils growing (no blooms yet). I am always amazed that things I plant (perennials) come back each year - I have actually been seen by neighbours doing a happy dance when I spot a sprout of a returning/renewing plant. Lucky you that you have perennial Rosemary. Happy 2012 Spring

Mary-Lou- It sounds like you have a lovely garden. Being in Southern Ontario, you probably have a similar growing season as I do in Southern Michigan. I am jealous of your tulips and want to plant some this fall. Happy Spring!
