During this COVID-19 situation, our household — along with the rest in our village — is “self isolating”. It’s not too difficult if you are already a bit of an introvert, love books, and have a garden. While the daffodils have been up for a while and more flowers are blooming, there are other things happening in the garden that lighten the heart and mind. I decided to document them…

Our crabapple tree (Malus ‘Gorgeous’) is all a-bud!

The Primrose “sports” my brother-in-law gave us last year, which we planted in the rockery, are in bloom and naturalizing well.

I’ve been spending time in the new greenhouse sowing seeds. I especially want to try a “Three Sisters” plot — sweet corn, climbing beans and winter squash. So on Saturday — the Spring Equinox — I set to putting my seeds in root trainers and pots. I’m still preparing the soil where this plot will go. But I’m looking forward to some real corn on the cob in August!
