Shenandoah Valley Plants Ready for Spring

Plants are starting to grow up here on our little mountain ridge!

The weeds are probably doing best, but the perennials are also making a decent showing.

The daffodils, as usual, were the first to break ground, but the achillea and chamomile weren’t far behind!

I’m also happy to see the garlic doing well (though needing weeding), and the ferny tansy and oriental poppy already leafing out.

If the warm weather we’ve had (80 yesterday!) doesn’t get you into the spring mood, perhaps seeing some greenery will.

What’s growing in your part of the world?
