The morning sun glows through out the gardens. Hostas, Heucheras and Hydrangeas are showing their green... or purple.
The vegetable garden is finally under way. A little late this year but that's ok. The mid-day sun warms up the newly tilled earth. The only time I like to go barefoot outside is in the veggie garden. The warm, sandy loam soil feels good on my newly bare feet.
I planted Chives the first year we moved to Red Gate Farm. I love how they have little purple flowers in the spring and come back, year after year.
The apple trees are waking up from a long, long winter slumber.
And by late afternoon, down at the cherry tree, the bees were a buzzing. A good sign for our cherry crop. The sunny, warmer weather came at just the right time for the cherry and pear trees. Lots and lots of blossoms for the bees to visit and pollinate.
By dusk, the birds and bees have disappeared for the night. The Magnolia has been breathtaking this year. With the cooler weather coming just as the Magnolia bloomed, the blossoms have stayed on the tree for a record number of days. Typically their show is over in 3 or 4 days.
The white blooms show well in the dwindling daylight and into the night.
Hoping you've had time to enjoy your garden and spring, where ever you are.
