This early March weather is just plain weird. By the looks of things around here, spring has arrived a good four to six weeks earlier than usual. I'm not complaining, but the early warm temperatures caught me by surprise. In just the past week, my perennials have shot up to the point where I'm going to have to buy mulch very soon or I'll have a difficult time spreading it. Come to think of it, I haven't even seen mulch for sale around here yet!
Pictured above are hyacinth, bluebells, columbine, vinca ground cover, monarda, sedum, and Pasque flower. The Pasque flower (meaning "Easter" in French) is always the first to bloom, but this year it has plenty of company!
