Plum Blossoms after Snow

eye level plum blossumsSpring is here.  Grass Valley is catching up to the rest of California with plums in bloom and daffodils smiling. The green house is full of trays of soon to be seedlings and the temperatures are in the 50’s and 60’s.  The primrose’s are bursting with color, while the first dandelions have expressed their cheerful hello’s to the front yard.  We covered the pool at Spring Hill Cottage, with its solar cover to start the spring warm up, and it will be a big week in the orchard with moving compost, mulch and the last of the big fruits and small berries to fun and sunny places in the garden. We’ll be adding annual veggies and flowers in succession as they mature in the green house on  Mosswood Lane. Stop by, say hi, and join us for our 1 annual plant giveaway on u our May 11 Open house!  See you soon!
