Self-Care Challenge (Day 58): Spring Gardening

Spring is here…well, almost. Here in the Pacific Northwest the rainy season is still in full-swing, but there are a few hints of spring emerging nevertheless.

Yesterday, I conducted my first property walk-through of the year to see how my green friends weathered the winter months — and if my slimy friends have made their annual return. (Slugs are the bane of my March existence.)

I caught a few glimpses of Hellebore, Pulmonaria, Primrose, Vinca, Camelia and Mountain Laurel blooms, and I noticed that many others are beginning to bud. The trees did a great job of dropping leaves and branches, providing a natural mulch to prevent unwelcome weeds from popping up in the coming weeks.

I love spring. Daylight lingers a bit longer each day, the birds have resumed their usual chatter, and even neighbors are spending more time outside.

I’m looking forward to the return of sunshine and long hikes!
