Spring Blooms In Our Neighborhood

Tomorrow is Spring Equinox. This means, day and night have the same length. In our neighborhood the trees are still in full bloom. Now, many bulb flowers start to show signs of waking up, and soon show their beauty. Down our street blooms a white Iris. In my backyard, a second set of hyacinth just started to show their first flower petals.

Begin of Daylight Saving Time 2019

Luis wants to remind y’all, that tonight begins Daylight Saving Time in the US. He’s excited, because we all can enjoy longer day light in the evenings.

“Oh boy, oh boy! Am I excited about tomorrow. Mommy and Daddy are talking about Daylight Saving. I have no clue, what that means. But Mom told Daddy not to forget to change his clocks one hour forward tonight!”

The Colony Community Garden On 1st Day of Spring

Since my second bed was put together by the church gardeners, all I had to do is plant some tomatoes, peppers, basil, tomatillos, etc. But I also planted more flowers for our pollinators in the first bed. Last year, we had bees and beautiful butterflies visiting the garden. I would like to see, if a hummingbird is coming over for a visit as well. Pollinators are so important for a vegetable/fruit garden. Some plants get wind pollinated, others need a little help from our insect and bird friends. While most of the flowers still have to grow, before they will bloom; I captured photos of some flowers, which are in bloom right now. And of course, the vegetables are growing very well too.
