Spring has arrived…… Officially.All of the crocus’ are now blooming.Basking in the relatively beautiful first day of spring.I noticed just how much didn’t make it over this last harsh winter as I toured the garden today.

Two California Lilacs. A few rose bushes that the verdict is still out on. It doesn’t look good.

Everywhere I go I see dead California Lilac shrubs. Two years in a row of replacing them is enough.

I adore the smell, but I cant live through the continued heartache.
On the plus side, space is being opened up. A chance for new plants, new ideas. More experimentation…..

There are a few pleasures as well as tears when a new year of gardening begins.

Ahhh the joys of spring!
