What’s New for Spring Gardens?

SPRING PEEKS OUT from Winter doldrums.   It’s time to visit Spring Home and Garden Shows…to see what’s new and interesting for Spring 2016.

SPRING FLOWERS will soon be
Dressing yards and neighborhoods in  colorful finery,
Re-awakening senses to the world spread before us, and
Tugging on memories of playful Spring days with loved ones.

We see flowers everywhere on our visit to the Cabarrus County Home and Garden Show in North Carolina.

Water features on display are varied and add soothing music to garden displays.

Hummingbirds prefer a shallow water feature. This year’s show featured artistic hummingbird baths for the  colorful birds to dip their needle beaks into a garden art piece.

Created-to-order wrought iron garden benches add sculptural beauty to any garden .

And places to sit a spell and chat, or have an evening meal in artisan-crafted furniture, add comfort and style to outdoor garden rooms.

OK.  Now, I really do have Spring Fever.  Cool Spring breezes, dining alfresco, flowering bulbs and budding trees, working in the rich earth.  What project do I want to tackle this year to brighten my garden?

Spring …bursts with all the relish of a sudden surprise.”
(Mrs. William Starr Dana, According to Seasons, 1894.

  1. I’m always so anxious to start working on my garden once I get the first whiff of warm, spring air and the scent of soil; it’s difficult not to rush in and plant long before the danger of frost passes. So I”ll content myself with gardening magazines and bulb catalogs for now.

    1. Me too Laurie. I look for every sign of Spring looking forward so much to setting up outdoor room and planting garden.
