Spring is my favorite season. I love watching the trees and flowers bloom and come back to life after the winter. I find it amazing that they do this year after year.
The cherry blossoms are particularly beautiful in this area. I have been to the cherry blossom festival in Washington DC, however there are plenty of trees right by my house that are stunning without needing to fight the festival crowds.
Each fall I think about planting bulbs that will bloom in the spring and I finally did it this past fall. I planted close to 100 bulbs of varying types that bloom at different times to give me “color all season long”.
The bulbs needed the ground to be frozen for 4 to 6 weeks. Check! No problem there. My only other possible obstacle is the deer. My husband is convinced the deer already dug up the bulbs and ate them. I don’t believe this though. Some of the bulbs were labeled “deer resistant” and some were not. I think the deer are going to be kind to me and I am confident my yard is going to have an explosion of color this spring.
What is your favorite thing about spring?
