All it takes is one spring day full of sunshine and I'm ready to dig in the dirt and plant! Although it's definitely time for me to do my spring vegetable planting, we're still finishing up the painting of our new garden fence, so off to the nursery we went.
During the past couple of years, we've planted a few blueberry bushes and a peach tree (which is blooming so prettily at the moment), but we still feel the need to add some additional fruit bearers. So home we came with a good sized apple tree and some more blueberry bushes. It seems a long way off to think of our trees producing fruit, and yet I have a feeling it will be here in a blink of an eye.
Sweet little blueberry blooms...
We also came home with six flats of annuals for the front porch flower boxes. We plant Vinca every spring - even at our previous home - because we've found it to be wonderfully tolerant of shady porches.
Fortunately I had some little helpers that also wanted to dig in the dirt! (smile)
