This year I have experienced two Springs! Spring came to Georgia a bit late this year, and I was down with a respiratory illness so I almost missed it! I knew I would be heading North to judge Horticulture at a flower show in CT, so I reviewed and prepped for that from my bedside, while watching Springtime in Georgia from my window. We have had a very cool Spring in Savannah and it has been a delight!
In Connecticut the cool translated to downright cold but daffodils don’t mind and there were many to review. The Greenwich Daffodil Society has an annual flower show so I am glad the exhibitors at this show saved some great specimens to bring to this show.
The NOGS secret garden tour in downtown Savannah had occurred before this show, so I was in full Horticulture mode, and was prepared to see Spring happen again!
I knew not to expect to see a pineapple guava, as I did in Savannah. In recalling past Mays of gardening in CT, I felt sure I would see the flowering branches, and was delighted there were so many after the many rainy days they experienced.
Now I am back in Savannah where the roses are blooming and the long hot days of summer are still ahead. I am enjoying the garden in the South like never before. The humidity and heat will come, but for now, the enjoyment of this pristine place we call home is full and welcomed.
