Chomping...

.....at the bit.

That expression pretty much describes my mood lately as I eagerly wait for Spring to manifest itself in a way more tangible than just a chronological acknowledgement on a calendar.


There are so many things I want to do in the garden this year. I even drew diagrams last season to help me remember what should be moved to where. Changes need to be made to my shade garden, my main pond, the placement of the various daylilies strewn about, and new locations for the herb garden. In addition, I'm thinking of constructing another ......though much smaller.......arbor to shade the bench that overlooks the pond. But that might not happen for a while. At least not if this persistent chill lingers and prevents me from getting started with everything else.

Right now, the snow might be finally gone, but the overall atmosphere feels more like Seattle than Central Jersey!

    1. Yep. My fear is that we will go from low 40's cold to 80's hot with no real "spring" transition. I hate that.

  4. While we too are enjoying a rather cool spring, the plants in South Georgia are in full swing. The blueberries escaped the late frost and are loaded with young berries. We have infantile peaches, pears, cherries, blackberries, and even,for the first time, olives! Hang in there Spring is coming.

    1. Thanks, Lurker. Yeah I suppose it's inevitable, but the wait is causing things to pile up.

      I love the idea of growing olives!

    1. Well, 90's weather wouldn't be ideal either. All I want is something int the high 50's to low 60's to transition.
