This past week it’s finally started feeling like Spring. The weather has been lovely and the trees are starting to grow little buds. I CAN NOT WAIT for all of the trees to have leaves again. Spring is my favorite!! I’m so so excited to pick lilacs and mulberries, and attempt to grow our backyard garden again. Last year was our first summer in our house, and we were so excited to have such an awesome garden plot. BUT we had a crazy drought where it didn’t rain for like 4 months straight and was over 105° most days. Oh it was torture… On the bright side though, there’s no way our garden can do worse this year!
Juniper is excited to help out. This week our goal is to pull out all of those weeds and dead plants from last year. We’re also planning on starting some seeds inside. We bought flower seeds for Juniper’s little flower garden in the front yard, and I have dreams of buying a potted lemon tree to replace the yucca plant near our walkway. (I hate that thing.)
At times like this, I wish I inherited my mom’s green thumb. That woman can grow anything. I can’t even keep a succulent alive. But I’m hopeful for this year’s crops! And even if our garden poops out on us again, my father-in-law has an AMAZING garden and they are always more than happy to share.
