Spring doesn’t properly begin for three weeks, although I understand that 1 March is the first day of autumn for at least some of our friends in the southern hemisphere. At any rate, over the weekend I did a little bit of work in the garden, mainly battling with the weeds which are growing like, well, weeds with the rain and periodic days of sunshine. Lesson learned, weeds: In the future, I will use weed barriers.
Here’s what most of the garden looks like at the moment. (Calling it a “garden” is really kind of overkill because it’s more like a very small yard, as you can probably guess from this picture. The neighbors are on the other side of the fence.) In a month, this scene will look totally different because everything will have leaves. This view was taken viewing from south to north, but we’re going to wander north to south in this month’s installment of the jasmine project.
As predicted, the northernmost plant has finally topped the bar at the top of the fence!
This daffodil is just about to pop open.
The maples are seriously leafing out.
The jasmine in the middle has also just managed to hit the top of the trellis.
The jasmine under the peach is growing rather nicely.
More daffodils getting ready to roll. Also, weeds!
Finally, the southernmost plant, shrubbing out rather nicely.
