Last year, around this time, NY was the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic. I ventured out the house for only the essentials and sadly, but smartly, that didn’t include gardening supplies or plants. So, the garden languished all year—doing its best to be splendiferous with the remnants of what survived from the year before and without my TLC.
This year, it’s been tilled and manured, mulched and watered. With a few new perennial additions and some fixtures of smiley frogs, and the like, the garden is coming back to vibrancy.
Rhododendrons, Cat Mint, Lilies, Roses, Hydrangeas, Meadow Sage all bursting in bloom and fragrance.
The Hydrangeas, Azaleas and Syringa won’t be outdone—they too are exploding in vibrancy of color and splendor of fragrance.
Spring feels more like summer which bids and welcomes me to enjoy the outdoors. An umbrella for a little shade, and the garden is the best place to repose.
Even the butterflies are returning.
The beauty of creation on a tiny-tiny-tiny plot on this vast-vast-vast eARTh. And, the garden is exhibiting all kinds of happy vibes again!
