Spring landscape

Our gardener, Karen Johnson, got an early start on some of our perennial areas.  Weeding and edging at the start of the season offers evidence to the ordered sections of this offering.

We trimmed the spirea bush and the perennial grass severely at the entrance to the gazebo garden.  They will fill in nicely this year and be easier to shape and control in the future.

The rhubarb plants produce early in the season, and we have a crop ready for harvest.  Some pies are on the desert menu coming up!

The herb garden was also prepared for planting and harvest.
Chives, tarragon, oregano, and sage winter over with some protection and we'll add more tender choices soon.

The gardens are looking wonderful. Now shoo those deer back into the woods!
