I love this time of year, despite our unseasonably chilly spring, the garden is coming alive. I love walking around my yard, in my robe and slippers, coffee in hand each morning. My neighbors probably think I'm a bit loony, but I do go outside nearly every morning. Some times I even am compelled to grab the pruners and cut back blooms, pull a few weeds, deadhead. Ohhhh I love the smell of slug bait in the morning!
Yes I love to garden, and if you are a gardener you know what I am talking about. It is so satisfying to watch your garden come alive in the spring. Sweet peas starting to bloom this week, strawberries are ready, roses are peaking and slugs are having a party with all the rain! This is what gardening in the Pacific Northwest is!
Gardeners love to share - gathering ideas from each other, sharing plant cuttings or bouquets or all that extra zucchini! Gardening is a labor of love that is meant to be shared. This weekend at the Gig Harbor Garden Tour, seven local gardeners do the ultimate sharing by opening up their home gardens to over 1000 strangers.
