I think spring might actually be here
April 26th, 2012
Yes, a full month AFTER our spring equinox, the garden is popping! Here’s my happy spring bouquet, made just for me. But I wanted to share it, too:
Vintage green fluted vase (flea market find)
Aromatic lilacs from Oregon Coastal Flowers (Tillamook, Oregon)
Very fragrant white sweet peas, velvety lamb’s ears and acid-green nicotiana – all from Janet Foss at J. Foss Garden Flowers.
The setting: my garden. I perched the arrangement on my wonderful weathered garden chair.

Very nice! The shocking chartreuse is a great contrast with the snowy white, and the soft pink adds just the right amount of softness.

Beautiful bouquet! It is nice to have found the writer of such wonderful gardening books online.
Have a beautiful Spring!

Planting spring flowers according to what planting zone you are in will yield the best results, as each zone has different dates for the last frost of the season and variations in climate..

…and the sweet smell!!! I miss my lilac shrub… actually I just miss its gorgeous blossoms at this time of the year. Time for a visit to the flower market!
