Warm Weather Approaching

Leave a comment

It seems we’ve gone from early spring to summer in one day. Not all that long ago we were scraping our cars in the morning and seeing frost on the roof-tops. Today – it was 27 degrees.

But who’s complaining? The rains we had last week, combined with this weeks heat has sure made the garden start to wake up.

The bleeding hearts are finally blooming, the allium is about to, and the hostas, ferns and other perennials are starting to pop out of the ground.

With only a week to go before the official May-24-time-to-plant-weekend I plan to go get my multiple flats of impatiens tomorrow and might just take my chances before the official Ontario start of summer…..will just have to keep a tarp or two handy in case of that last surprise frost.

Happy Planting!

Yes, there's the odd failure, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as walking through the veggie patch collecting dinner.
