Today we’re back in Malvern, Pennsylvania, celebrating spring with frequent GPOD contributor Carla Zambelli Mudry.
A little birdhouse brings cheerful color all year long and will, no doubt, soon be home to a family of baby birds.
A peek inside Carla’s greenhouse reveals some plants that are a little too tender to go outside just yet, along with the first seeds planted of zinnias (Zinnia species and hybrids, annual) and sunflowers (Helianthus annuus, annual).
Another look in the greenhouse shows new herbs waiting to get planted out and seed trays waiting to germinate.
The fat, fuzzy buds of a Magnolia wait for a little warm to push open into beautiful flowers. The deciduous magnolias are famous for their incredible early spring blooms, but they often pay for their precocious ways by being damaged by late frosts.
