Bloom Time

Spring is here and my plants are starting to peek out. Exciting !!!!

Past winter was particularly harsh in Atlanta. We had snow that lasted for a whole week which is very unusual. I was quite sure that my peonies, Jasmine, french lavender and tulips were dead by now. But nature is kind and its amazing to see all my plants happy and ready for the summer display.


Last weekend we installed a drip irrigation system for my vegetable patch and containers. Our existing in-ground sprinkler system did not cover the vegetable garden which meant watering the patch EVERYDAY. Not fun. Back to the drip irrigation, this is a great DIY project which is good for the plants and also saves gallons of water. Here is the online store from where I ordered the kit.
