Usually the branches remain bare until the late months of April
when it finally bursts into an amazing dark purple.
(for those who haven’t seen a weeping purple beech I’d recommend it)
Its the uncommon warm weather we’ve experienced, the bright sunny
days that make you say “Is this really March, seriously?”.
Swelling buds, emerging tulips, and developing crab apple blossoms,
all things I love about the garden.
Is there anything better than the smell of warm topsoil and the feeling of
a good trowel in your hands? To a gardener in spring, probably not.
It makes me anxious for the time when I can take out the tomato cages, pull out the
Adirondack chairs, and hang the garden lanterns.
What are you doing to prepare your garden for spring?
