    Red face Spring is Coming!! Any gardeners around?

    Finally! I know its Spring because the winds are howling here in Toronto again and it's raining. Made me nostalgic for my garden. Here are a few pics of my yard in bloom. It gave me a little lift and hope that warm weather and daffodils will soon follow!

    Yes, I'm getting excited about gardening again. I just have a small porch (2nd floor) here in the city, but there's a lot I can do with it. Below are pictures from previous years of one of my planters with a tile mosaic I made, my garden fish pond and my garden veggies:

    That's amazing! The tile mosaic is lovely. You must be south facing? Looks like a lot of light if you can grow veggies! We had a balcony but every time I watered it would drip on the people on the second floor. They weren't too happy.
    Love the fish pond. My neighbour had one until a raccoon ate his koi.. Now the raccoons come over here and wait for the birds to lay eggs so they can eat them.

    That's pretty funny. The porch faces southeast. The fishpond is outside June-Oct and inside Oct-June with rosy red minnows and neon rosy barbs. I'm going to start seeds for the veggies in about a week.

    Nice. We don't have enough sun except for the apricot tree we have espaliered against the garage. Otherwise we do herbs (sage, thyme mostly) and grow Swiss chard and kale. We face east but there is not enough afternoon sun in the backyard (facing west) to grow a nice veggie plot. Its great that you have room to start seeds. I just buy seedlings. And perennials in blue.

    Thanks so much JumpingJewels! DH and I laid that flagstone ourselves. I'm going to try and divide my ferns and maybe stick one in one of the enclosures after I process it.

    I live on a hillside and am thinking about starting a design on my own miniature river, a stream at the top of the hill running down to a medium sized Koi pond and maybe even a miniature water wheel. Of course, I have to check my city codes to see if I am allowed to have one that big, especially since I already have a small pond in the front.

    What about a dry river bed made out of river stones that lead to the pond? Might be a bit easier to construct and the size issue would be mitigated by the dry river bed.
