Spring, Act II: Thinking Pink


Pink tulipAaaahhhh, a perfect spring in Arch City. Not too hot, not too cold, sunny, just enough rain; all the right ingredients for a delightful spring. Two weeks ago the early bloomers–star magnolia, jonquil, bradford pear, forsythia were tuned up just in time for the Easter parade.

Now, we’re pretty in pink and purple. Tulips, redbud, pink dogwood that drop your mouth open and make you grateful for four glorious seasons.

Welcome to the Arch City Gardener. My name is Mimi and I started this blog to share my journeys in learning to garden in St. Louis County, Missouri and learn more from my readers who garden. Thanks for reading The Arch City Gardener.

  1. Mimi,
    I loved your garden tour! Happy gardening!

    • Thank you Ellen. My path from home to work is a parade a pink this year. Rain this morning and I am hoping our community’s “Grow Glendale Gorgeous” planting effort won’t get rained out.

  2. Beautiful photos, especially the tulips. All things that we can’t grow in theSan Antonio heat and soil. We’ve been having major rain– yea!–but I did plan to change out the last of my pots from cool season annuals to warm season. Hope you get to beautify Glendale today.

    • Thanks Susan. That pink tulip is in our dear sister Nancy’s yard. She purloined the bulbs last year from the trash piles near the Jewel Box in Forest Park! (That is a blog post for another day.)
