Early Spring Around the Farm

With hints of spring in the air, things are changing dramatically at the farm. I love this time of year when the garden begins to wake up after a hibernation period. Every day there is something new and colorful dotting the landscape.


One of the first flowers to emerge after winter is chionodoxa, also called glory-of-the-snow, because it will often emerge when there is still snow on the ground. It blooms in many shades of blue, white, and pink.


Chionodoxa are great neutralizers, and the clusters planted in many parts of the property are spreading so nicely year after year.


Crocus blanket the ground with swaths of white, yellow, and purple, and the daffodil border is a sea of buds just moments from unfurling into many shades of yellow.
