This is what my backyard garden looks like right now.
It seems crazy to have the plants all bundled up because the pictures are so bright and sunshiny. The reality is that it was quite warm in the sunshine when I took these photos. But freezing morning temperatures may still be lurking this winter, so as badly as I want to let the hidden garden show itself, I wait. Well, not exactly. I’ve taken a peek here and there just to make sure everything is okay with my little plant family.
Underneath the burlap, my plants are growing greener, taller and stronger. There are even flowers blooming.
I am desperately waiting for spring to arrive…and wishing it would stay for the summer.
