It is certainly daffodil time on The Hill. Daffodils are a joy to me. I find them cheerful. The fields start greening up and the daffodils pop out in glorious shades of yellow. I started with a bag of FEDCO daffodil bulbs I picked up at Common Ground Fair in 2001 and now have a number of daffodil clumps on garden edges and around the yard. I like to look out the window and see daffodils.
But look, look quick– the old grand maple behind the house is waking up too! Welcome to May sweet Mamma Maple. I’m so glad to see you.
The flowering marigold in the window box is a Durango marigold from Johnny’s Selected Seed It’s my first time growing marigolds for containers. They are one of the main container garden flowers for the Green Love Renaissance garden and are supposed to be edible as well.
I’m thinking of creating a Green Love container salad for the Court of Cannabia. The plants for the salad could include a Garden Peach tomato from my saved seed, Durango marigold and Sorbet pansies. I’m on search for beautiful lettuces that grow well in containers now.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden blog for her weekly blog call for “Flowers in a Vase” every Monday. I look forward to looking through all the posted flower vases on Mondays.
