"Time is what prevents everything from happening at once."
~ John Archibald Wheeler
It is transition time in the garden. The winter blooms still abound while the spring blooms are just beginning to open. This past weekend we were at the farm enjoying some much needed family time.
Here is a look at the farm's zone 8b garden.
A few late winter blooms still flowering
Cabbage was ready for harvest and we ate the most delicious coleslaw.
The azaleas were just beginning to put on a show.
Some dainty daffodils cheered up the garden with their delicate faces.
While others were decidedly taking their time.
Some trees were beginning to bloom showing signs of life, vigor and opulence.
unknown tree but it sure did have pretty blooms
Red maple seeds
While some do not have much time left. This one will go out with a flair for the dramatic.
Two blooms from the cutting garden held their own like two lone soldiers taking a stance.
Time sure does fly when you are having fun and the long weekend whizzed by. Of course time is never on your side when you are on a schedule. With the cars packed and ready to hit the road our dog Biscuit decided it was a good idea to go and roll in cow dung.
I threatened to leave him behind but he had such a smile on his face and was so happy I quickly got over it. He had a bath and was allowed to return home with us.
Six hours later and back at my zone 8a garden time is moving slightly more slowly. Some of the winter blooms such as the camellia are just now peaking.
The first daffodils are bursting open.
And the Euphorbia are taking their sweet time.
Time seems to stand still when you gaze at the water droplets lingering in these rosettes.
And a sure sign that winter is winding down and spring is just around the corner is the end of the cherry blossom gala.
