A few photos of my Southeast Tennessee spring garden, featuring my Peter’s Honey fig tree and small purple wildflowers.
When I retired form teaching my fellow 8th grade teachers surprised me with a fig tree. They had listened to me lament about how much I wanted a fig tree, many times during lunch. This particular variety is Peter’s Honey. As you can see, it is still very small, but is still putting out a few figs for us.
The hosta is about a 1/3 of it’s size now and seems to grow overnight. My beds are also filled with this small purple wildflower, which I believe is a wild geranium. It reseeds easily and pops up in new places every spring.
In the bottom corner of the last photo are garlic chives. When my daughter came home for Easter, I put her to work in the herb bed and we have finally gotten all of the garlic chives up. I like them, but they are so invasive. I would like to have some regular chives.
That’s my garden, what’s growing in yours this week?
