What will we see coming up at A Bitty Better?

It’s an exciting time at A Bitty Better.

My dear wife Karen asked me if I’d seen the sprouts. Out front and in the back.

Yes, this February thaw has brought green from bulbs in our new home in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville.

We moved from The Little Bitty in the Syracuse neighborhood of Eastwood in October. There, Karen had lovingly played with nature for a dozen years, planting the balls of perennial prettiness into the ground herself.

Here, we’d pulled various weeds and dead stuff out of the garden beds in late fall and early winter. Yet we have no idea what we’ll see come spring.

How exciting.

Keep coming, please and thank you.

I am quite sure that I will enjoy a trip to the garden center with my dear wife and be tasked with more shovel work from the mind of Karen come April.

I am greatly looking forward to it.

What’s the state of nature where you live? What’s will be coming up around your home? Do you change plantings often, and if so, how do you come up with the plan?

  1. We had so many fun surprises when we moved to our new house a few years ago. We moved here in the dead of winter, so come spring we had no idea what we would find. Lot’s of lilies, crocuses, a few daffodils, some grape hyacinth, a huge surprise of wild strawberries which I replanted but they only lasted a year that way, and some various herbs such as tarragon and thyme. We’ve since re-landscaped and put a fire-pit patio where all the lilies and herbs used to be, but the crocuses and such still come up each year!


  2. In a state of flux. Everything still very dry and the gums have stopped flowering, coolish nights but my market garden neighbors are about to plant the next rotation of cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuces, artichokes. My roses are still in bloom.
