Happy beginning of April, everyone! We finally had a much-needed dry and sunny day–66 degrees–yahoo! I ran around and did a lot of little cleaning jobs out in the garden; still have a bunch left to do, but isn’t that the normal state of affairs in a garden? Read with interest that last month was the 3rd wettest March since the weather people started keeping records in our area (in 1890!)
- March 2012 had 7.81 inches of rain
- normal amount of rain in March: 3.71 inches!
According to my informal records for weather here at Minerva’s Garden, last March had 24 days of rain, while this March had only 22 days of rain, but we just got a lot more rain on those days, apparently.
As I mentioned, today was lovely and sunny, so I went around and took a few pictures of some of my favorite early spring flowers–hyacinths. Although Hyacinth was a divine hero from Greek mythology, here hyacinth works some magic out in my garden in early April!
And because there is so little jazz that has anything to do with gardening–(and this is a stretch, but still . . .) Here is “Joy Spring”–enjoy!
“Isn’t Spring your favorite season?
Watchin’ the flowers bloomin’ up out of the ground,
Watchin’ the snow melt down, boy,
You may dig wintertime but spring is my joy!”
Do you have hyacinths blooming in your garden? What is new in your garden lately? Let me know down in the comments, because I always love to hear from you!
