KT has informed me that all seasons begin on the 22nd of a month. While I have yet to investigate the truth in this statement by my 7-year old, one this is for sure -- spring is coming, and we are starting to see a little more life in the garden.
The columbine and hydrangea leaves are gaining strength daily, and the lavender is making a big push right now.
One of my all-time favorites is in bloom right now. I just love the heady smell of jasmine. I planted our vine about 16 months ago, and it is blooming beautifully right now.
