The snow is finally melting away! Time to appreciate the beauty of our SPRING COTTAGE GARDEN!
A few of my previous posts shared information on a few of my favourite spring flowers. If you’re looking to add some interest to your spring cottage garden, consider adding Snowdrops, Crocus, and Narcissus and Daffodils. Remember, they’re easy to care for and establish, plus the blooms will brighten your spirits on a drab winter or early spring day.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to offer a few more photos of our garden as it “came back to life” this year. I’m always amazed by this transformation and I know your spring cottage garden looks much the same. If you’re looking to start a garden for the first time, read THIS article on hardiness zones.
Here’s a list of some of the flowers, bulbs, plants and trees. Consider planting wild columbine, hyacinth, wild strawberries, soapwort and sarvisberry.
Additional favourites include: sempervivum (hens and chicks), forsythia, violets and hellebores.
I’ve also snuck in a photo of one of my favourite seasonal visitors, the Northern Leopard Frog. Like their spring peeper cousin, these frogs are always welcome in my garden because they eat bugs, and as we all know, “NO bugs allowed!”
If you’re looking to purchase spring bulbs try BRECKS BULBS in Canada and RUIGROK in the States.
A garden is the perfect place to witness the arrival and progress of spring!
