There has been so much wonderful work done in the garden lately! The gourd and sweet pea trellises have been built and installed by Winslow, the pansies have been planted in abundance by Marjorie, the weeding has been done with diligence by Jenna. How exciting!

And the bulbs look amazing! Tasha's garden has over 100 different varieties of narcissus and crocus...a veritable seed catalogue on the terraces and under the crabapple trees! The upper terraces  feature many rows of the small tete a tete, one of my favorites. Here are just a few:

Christina, our shipper/packer, said the other day, "I only have a few paltry crocuses...but Spring really comes to Tasha's garden!" and she's right. Tasha's garden really comes alive in Spring.

It's so exciting to see all of the life coming to Tasha's garden, both the joy of the gardeners happily working and the joy of the flowers bursting forth. As Tasha quoted in A Time to Keep:

"Welcome be thou 
faire, fresshe May."
~Geoffrey Chaucer

Welcome, indeed! Has Spring come to your garden? What's blooming now where you live? We'd love to hear!
