My garden is just growing beautifully this season. The warm winter we had seemed to put my garden several weeks ahead of itself so my roses and other plants started leafing out and growing literally months earlier than they normally do.
Remember – I’m in a cold climate. I have a zone 5b garden here in Toronto. That’s not the coldest gardening climate, but it’s not southern gardening either. LOL A warm winter was a nice change.
My roses are just finishing their first flush of blooms. They were absolutely gorgeous this year. Just walking into my backyard was a treat. Looking at all the roses in bloom was lovely as was the scent of the roses. It was warm for most of May – warm enough mid month that we had the air conditioning running 24 hours a day, but towards the end of the month and even now it’s been cooler and we’ve had the windows open and the scent of the roses and the honeysuckle has been wafting indoors and it’s beautiful. I wish all of my roses were in bloom all of the time and that all of them gave off scent.
I still have some work to do in my garden to fully prepare it for summer. I have to plant some annual flowers and put a bit more mulch down but I think I’m otherwise prepared. How is your garden? Do you have flowers blooming?
