Spring!



Well ok, it was only for one evening but it was sure nice to SMELL spring! Jim and I spent Valentine's evening at the NJ Flower Show in Edison. Much smaller than the Philadelphia Flower show, it nevertheless gets us in the mood for spring.




















I love the smell of hyacinths! The ones in my garden don't look anything like the ones in the pots in the garden centers or like these did but they smell wonderful. Mine always look like something ate half the flowers or they're diseased.





This was an exhibit for water conservation with the rain barrel and the soaker hose. We have the rain barrel that leaks since we lost the plug (gum does NOT work).




I just liked the daffodils. Nothing says spring to me more than the daffodils poking up through the soil. They're up about 3" on the south side of the shop but not peeking through at home at all.





This is Jim checking out the huge Koi in the pond.



Garden shows let you dream of spring and of what your garden could be - if you had a team of professional gardeners!







Till next time.
