The Glorious Month of April


There are so many momentous things that mark the month of April around here..  our anniversary and both of our birthdays for starters..Easter, spring arrives and most of all...GARDENING begins in earnest....

Our snowball bush has been spectacular this year.  It is way too big and is way past time for pruning.  But I thought I would just let it go one more year and see what it does.    It is fabulous... I had to start the pruning this morning because it is overshadowing a Deodar cedar and making it grow lopsided so..out came the loppers for a few branches.  It will get a major pruning as soon as it finishes blooming..






 I think these make perfect wedding flowers..white and billowy so I used them in setting an anniversary tablescape..



We celebrated 20 years on April 1...a huge milestone for us.

And now...the BIG spring project.  A new raised bed garden.  I have asked to expand my garden for several years and this just happened to be the year that everything worked out.
 Here they are as a work in progress.  This was a couple of weeks ago.  Now they have been filled with compost and are just waiting for me to fill them with all good things.  I am beyond excited at the possibilities.



I hope you are having a good spring.  and getting outside to enjoy this warm southern weather.  Such a lovely season we are experiencing.

Love, Mona
