The first sign of spring in my garden is the weeping cherry. Such a show off you have never seen.
Having no competition since everything around it is pretty drab makes it easy to be the star of the show for about 2 weeks. But the king of the spring garden, in my opinion, is this little gem right here.
Oh it doesn't look like much right now. But just you wait.
Before you know it the beautiful blue and purple will burst out of their seams. They are tall and strong and tower over everything else around them. These are the flowers that will elicit comments from strangers that walk by and almost trip as they crane their necks to get a glimpse of them from every angle. The allium - one of my best garden investments yet. More photos to come as they progress into full bloom. Meanwhile on another gardening front...
The supervisor had a couple of visitors today while we were weeding. I wanted to enforce the "no fraternizing while working" rule, but how could I? Besides, they found a small snake and chased it away thus earning their new status as assistants to the supervisor.
