Let us ignore the pest issue currently facing the garden, shall we?
First, bulbs! The snowdrops have been and gone and I appear to have neglected capturing those. The crocus are doing well. The daffodils are making a start. The hyacinth is definitely waking up.
The herbs are returning! Chives, parsley, cilantro, and oregano. The thyme is considering waking up, but is still grumpy. I don't know what's happened to the basil. Does that not reappear each spring?
Shrubbery and trees. The only shrub showing signs of action are the forsythia. Scratch that. The dogwood has lost its winter brilliant-red color. It's too early for the rest of the shrubs. The maple is the only tree whose buds are growing larger.
I am expecting good things to happen, with the coming warmth!
