March Tour

Every so often I enjoy a little garden tour for the blog, sharing the essence of the moment in my little corner of the earth.

I’ll start with my personally most anticipated moment of early spring-my Red Baron peach tree in bloom.  It seems like when everyone else’s trees are already blooming, my peach is taking her sweet time.  The garden always has a way of reminding me of patience.  The first flower is about to open.

I have sown some seeds in toilet paper rolls as I did last year but out of sometimes laziness and sometimes forgetfulness, every few nights they get left out over night.  It’s still in the high forties at night, so we will see how well they germinate.  Here’s the first seedling I spotted, which happens to be the heirloom tomato named Cherokee Purple.

My tried and true sugar snap peas lend a delicate touch to these winter months.

My broccoli is a bit small, but the intensity of flavor will make up for any lack in size.

Today's last photo is of a succulent in a hanging basket.  Although you can't eat it, I couldn't resist including it since the evening light hit it just so.

  1. Lovely photo tour! Thanks. Your Red Baron peach blossom photo looks so pretty it could be a rose bud. Your Minnie royal cherry tree is ahead of my neighbor’s trees in leaves and fruit. Her’s are still barely blossoming.
