Spring Garden in NY

Every year I am amazed how my garden explodes with color in the spring. I have always said that the fall is my favorite time of year but a good friend never agreed with me. For her it is the spring and finally I agree with her. I grew up in New Hampshire where the fall was the best. But now I have lived in NY- Queens, Westchester & Long Island for almost twenty-five years- yikes!- and here the spring is the best. My garden, full of roses, clematis, irises, alliums and peonies, makes me smile every morning. I have no special gardening tips except to give your garden lots of love and attention and it will give back to you. A friend called me a collector when it came to my choices in plants. It is true- somewhat- basically I want everything! I inherited my love of gardening from my parents. They are no longer around but my garden is and that keeps me close to them. Here are a few photos to give you a peak at my paradise.
