Spring has Sprung in Oregon

Spring is here! Or I think it’s here. My garden thinks it’s here, so that’s good enough for me.

I must say that having 6 1/2 acres to play on during a pandemic is not a bad thing. There are so many parts to our garden now, after 18 years of rock moving, ground shaping, bushwacking, trimming, weeding, trail building, tree cutting, clearing out plants that expanded of their own free will, and planting, digging up, moving and re-planting. It’s a process to be sure. Each year the property gives us such delight in unexpected ways. It is an ever-changing landscape and garden: oops tree fell down in windstorm, hey, now there is more sun….what will grow there?!

There is a rhododendron and maple garden, the sunroom garden, the timber bamboo garden….and the “hiking” trail being created that is over one mile and growing! Yes, it’s all a lot of work. Sometimes it seems overwhelming. But this year it was a blessing.

Enjoy and get out there if Spring has come to your neck of the woods!
