I went to see the Daffodils at a local park.
This was my second trip to see the spring display, I enjoyed them last year. One thing I did notice was that some of the older plantings are in need of some fertilizer, the blooms were few in numbers amidst that foliage.
The newer plantings were glorious.

Spring plantings are well under way. After the long winter it's time to enjoy
Blue is the choice of color in this first of the season planting, with the help of golds and
chartreuse and greens. These colors work well with the black
Blue and purple viola's have a supporting cast of 'Lemon Cyprus', Lettuce, red cabbage, and 'Creeping Jenny'
The front entrance pots already had 'Boxwood Topiaries planted in them that survived through the winter. A planting of blue Viola's takes them to spring.
No spring planting is complete with some 'Pusy Willow' branches
This we like!

We're all familiar with spring cleaning, and how it applies to the garden as well,
Nothing cleans up a garden after a long winter than a fresh layer of mulch
Also on the chore list was a planting of Arborvitae shrubs
It is a good Idea to get some of these early chores done as soon as you can.
