All the Flowers Are Blooming!

All the flowers are popping out and the grass is green and growing fast.

Flowers are Blooming everywhere at Big Mill

Time will move slowly if you just relax in the hammock or sit in the wicker swing that hangs from a pecan tree planted that my folks planted in 1922
I make  an annual pilgrimage to Virginia Beach in search of the elusive heirloom white eggplants  After my Cook’s Garden is planted, I just pamper the seedlings and wait for the produce.
Ginger lilies bloom at Big Mill Inn and perfume the air | https://chloesblog.bigmill.com/spiderwort-edible-flower-in-the-big-mill-garden/

Ginger lilies are just popping up, waiting to perfume the night air.

The sturdiest perennials like the peonies, tradescantia (spiderwort), ginger lilies, everlasting sunflowers, old garden phlox, and the herbs are up and fighting for equal space in the garden

I miss my dad and my cousin Bobby Gurkin in the spring. They both used the Old Farmer’s Almanac religiously. Even after my father died, I could call Bobby and ask him if it really was all right to plant potatoes on a certain day. And he would tell me. The planting is tied to the phases of the moon, and only on certain days do you plant root crops and different days for above ground crops.
So begins spring at Big Mill B&B… we just enjoy the outside, never forgetting to sip lemonade under the shade of the old pecan tree.
