Spring in New Orleans
We haven’t had very many showers this April, but the gardens are starting to recover from the deep freezes we experienced this winter and the flowers are either making a come back or are settling in to their newly dug homes.
It’s that time of year (before the heat sets in) that everyone is out in their yards and gardens, sprucing things up and showing off their curb appeal. The petunias I planted earlier in the year are in full bloom and I’m enjoying them while they last…soon it will be time to replace them with something a little more heat tolerant. The black eyed Susans came back on their own, the salvia gave me a little surprise when it started sprouting up too and the first of the irises bloomed this week.
