Lion or lamb March is here
Spring is definitely stirring in the garden.
Weeping Santa Rosa plum has blossoms.
A few tulips from last year’s plantings are pushing through. I think I’m going to have to let go of the Queen of the Night black flowered beauties. No sign of them at all. The desert isn’t really tulip world.
Hemerocallis (day lily) are coming back strongly in both north and south garden areas.
Rhubarb ventures a leaf or two after disappearing for winter.
Onions - red in south west garden and yellow in north - are showing tiny spears.
Sugar snap peas reach for support to climb.
Dutch Iris stand strong under the cottonwood while breadseed poppies, spinach chard, beets, carrots, kale, strawberries and garlic shake off the cold nights and welcome warm sunshine.
