Spring in the Yard
Well, maybe you had to be there...
Have these grape hyacinths all over the yard in different places, one thing that does well here, year after year and get bigger and bigger with each year. such a harbinger of Spring!!! The blooms last for a long time too.
More of the Lentin Rose. It is doing well this year and gets bigger and better, I put a cage around it as it tends to fall over and flop and this way I can se the pretty faces better...
My potintella (sp) has leaves.. also the blueberry bush, and red twig dogwood all are doing well, but that stupid holly hock that did so well last year, has not a thing on it so far, maybe a late leafer??? also the lilacs are not good, last year they were blooming all over and so very fragrant, this year there is hardly any blooms on it and part of what is there has brownish flowers here and there, must have gotten frostbit I think...
A different daffy blooming here, after the normal ones are almost done too, so that is neat that there is something coming up after the others. Like to get things spaced out, so there is always something going on in the yard and not times of the year that there is nothing going on..
Have little forget me nots or johnny jump ups all over in the gravel and the bark dust...blooming too, looks so very cute... they must just seed something awful to have all of them com u the way they do..
Well that is about it for the yard, oh, the herbs, mint, oregano, tarragon, chives are all coming on too, but not very exciting pictures :) just leaves, but really good, big, healthy plants.
Pretty soon here am going to start haunting the garden stores and bringing home more plants and put in.. also the neighbor got some really nice compost and it looks so nice I may go get some of that too! and spread all around the place.
Hope all is well and Springy in your neck of the woods, Take Care and God Bless all!!!
