Getting ready for spring—photos of a fabulous bulb garden in Halifax
With the weather being so glorious today, I thought it would be fun to share some photos of an incredible spring garden here in Halifax.
This is Stewart MacInnes’s garden in the South End.
His garden has over 12,000 bulbs, including crocus and hyacinth plus many tulip varieties, and also features numerous stone carvings, bird baths and statues. The tulips alone create dazzling carpets of colour and panoramic texture from April to June.
It’s really making me look forward to the spring bulbs I planted last fall. I’m already seeing a few brave shoots poking up—hopefully the warm sun we’ve been having this week we’ll really get things going.
What are you planning for your spring garden?
