I've begun working in my gardens, cutting back fall blooming plants, and I've been raking out the million and a half leaves from our neighbors yard, that blow into our yard with the westerly flow of the jet stream!
The lilac was cut back a few years ago, and last year it had a few blooms, and with our early winter mild weather I got a few fall blooms on it this last year. I am hoping that it will bloom well this year. It is right outside my kitchen door.
This little patch of crocus was here when we bought the house 14 years ago. It still faithfully blooms every year.
Some tulips coming up. (I warned you I had raking to do) Then we will mulch.
Our maple trees are starting to to get their leaf buds! So pretty against the blue sky!
Up by the road this little patch of daffodils faithfully bloom every year, as well. Soon, we'll have iris coming up and blooming, too.
I don't have a photo to show you, but the hydrangea from the front garden is leafing out and I am so happy! I'm going to get a good amount of flowers this year, again!
Peonies in the front garden!
Roses in the front garden!
I also have some veggie and herb garden plans that I'll share soon.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
