Spring at Red Butte
Saturday morning I decided to head to Red Butte Garden to see what is blooming. I didn’t walk the whole garden but here are a few photos I took. The gardeners were hard at work, which is what I was trying to do in the home garden last week.
The weather didn’t cooperate last week so I didn’t accomplish nearly what I’d hoped at home. There was some death and destruction over this winter. It seems my clary sage plants that I started from seed last year are toast and I was so hoping to see blooms on this plant in person instead of in a book. The worst thing about this winter was the unseasonably low temperatures in the teens back in November without any snow cover. Otherwise it was a normal Utah winter which means expect the unexpected. Ah well, most things are looking decent, if seeming a little late.
There’s some blooming in my garden and I will take some pictures this week. Chores beckon… transplanting, more cleanup, and pruning. Happy spring!
