Getting ready for the garden tour

I know some of you might be thinking that I am hibernating in my hole. The reason for my absence of blogging is that my garden has been chosen for this year's garden tour on May 4th. Whatever the funds that we raise will benefit local hospice care. Needless to say, I have been very busy weeding, planting, cleaning, and more weeding, in preparation for the show.

Here are few snapshots of the garden getting ready for the big event.

Tulips are done blooming. Freesias are blooming right now.  I was hoping all the bulbs would bloom at the same time for my garden tour. Well, we can't control the nature. I am worried that I may not have that much color in the garden by May 4th.

This is the raised bed in the kitchen garden with all salad greens, which I call my salad bowl. I will give you a detailed tour of the kitchen garden very soon
