Spring Cottage GardenInterests | May 15, 2015 | Nik Manojlovich
The snow is finally melting away, and as the days get longer it’s time to appreciate the beauty of our SPRING COTTAGE!
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. To view our images, simply click the arrow located on the above photo and you’ll be able to scroll through to see my favourites.
Here’s a list of some of the flowers, bulbs, plants and trees posted in our photo slider: wild columbine, hyacinth, strawberry, soapwort, sarvisberry and sempervivum (hens and chicks). 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 spring cottage garden because they eat bugs, and as we all know, “NO bugs allowed!”
A spring cottage garden is the perfect place to witness the arrival and progress of spring!
Listening to great music is an important part of every Weekend at the Cottage! For this post I listened to something truly miraculous – Strauss, R: A Her’s Life, Op. 40 – Death and Transfiguration, Op. 24 – Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra & Herbert von Karajan. I believe it to be one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. Visit iTunes if you’d like to add this album to your collection.
