Spring is finally in my garden. It lifts my spirits to look out of our window and see a color other than brown. I have been slowly planting more edible and native plants in my yard. I haven’t ripped out any of the other plants, so there are still some non-native species.
The white crabapple blossoms make your feet lift off the ground when you smell their scent. I know my neighbors are used to seeing me do strange things in the garden, so they probably don’t batt an eyelash seeing me standing under the tree sniffing for minutes on end.
You are looking at the crabapple blossoms, the double cherry tree (ornamental), my little apple tree, which is loaded with blossoms, a blueberry, the bleeding hearts, a Solomon’s Seal and a couple of ramps I planted last year.
