Yesterday, I asked you on my Facebook page, what was blooming in your garden right now?
March is a glorious time in the desert garden and also time for some needed garden maintenance.
We don’t have a landscaper, so we gather our kids together for a day of yard work each spring.

My young apple trees are in bloom. It takes a few years after planting for apple trees to produce apples. We planted the trees last winter and I don’t really expect to see the blossoms turn into apples, but secretly I am hopeful!
This is the first year that I have planted ‘Cherry Red’ nasturtiums. I love their vibrant, red color!
My husband and son are always so nice about planting things for me.
*You can see our puppy ‘Penny’ sitting in the shade watching them. She is now 8 months old and we just love her! I’ll post an updated picture of her soon.
I will most likely have more for them to plant after I visit the Desert Botanical Garden’s plant sale this weekend (March 13 & 14th)
