Sharing with Carol at May Dreams Gardens
How strange it is to hear from friends everywhere about their spring weather! Some complain about excess heat, others about hail and white on their roofs. From day to day there is no predicting. In Ontario we cannot rely on the weather people. We hope that things will gradually become warmer, but no, nothing is that simple. Our weather is erratic.
The odd thing from my point of view is that regardless of the temperature or storm conditions, the plants seem to make steady progress. Each day that I step out to inspect the gardens there are new things popping up. So far nothing has been damaged by frost or hail, though I did cover plants twice recently for frost protection.
I’d like to share with you my love of spring whites..and by this I do not mean snow flakes! Here are the most recent white blooms I have enjoyed.

Yes it’s Iberis sempervirens according to my expert, Sue!Tiarella CygnetThe fact that we have had both warm and cold spells means that blooms have lasted longer than usual. I’m enjoying this part, but soon I’ll be ready to plant out tomatoes and other vegetables. So bring on some warmth mother nature!
