Spring is in the air, and the front yard garden is on fire! Flowers are blooming. Bees are buzzing. Hummingbirds are zipping. The summer seedlings are happily planted. The deciduous trees are flush with new tender growth. I love this time of year in the front yard!
Come cruise around the garden with me, as I wander and point out what is growin’ and goin’ on. Also, say hello to our hummingbird friends!
I used to go “live” on my Instagram occasionally, especially when the garden was demanding attention – as it was this fine evening! Unfortunately, the live feature hasn’t been working for me lately. It has been super blurry, which is a total bummer… However, I couldn’t resist sharing this gorgeous sight! So one evening last weekend I shot an impromptu tour to share on IGTV (and later, YouTube) instead! I hope you enjoy this little meander with me!
As you’ll see by watching along, we have a pretty diverse selection of plants in the front yard. But you’ll also notice a theme: tons of plants for pollinators! If you enjoy this video, you’ll probably also enjoy this post – The Top 23 Plants for Pollinators: Attract Bees, Butterflies, & Hummingbirds!
Hint: If the video looks blurry to you for any reason, it may help to adjust the quality to the highest possible. To do this, click on the top 3 dots (on a mobile device) or the settings wheel on the bottom toolbar (desktop).
Thanks for watching! I hope you enjoyed the tour.
I will take a you along for a longer tour around the whole property very soon! In the meantime, if you’re curious to learn more about our gardens, see “Our Homestead”
