Wow, what a difference two weeks can make!
Our front garden is looking good and there are some sprouts popping out from the ground. Husband bought me some shears last week and I went to work trimming up the apple tree and rose bush. I did a couple other trees on the property, but it was the apple and rose that really needed it.
Tulips still haven’t flowered, but I checked them this morning and there are flower buds on some.
The brown leaves on this one and the floppy leaves makes me wonder if the late spring isn’t doing some damage.
Buds on the apple tree. I took a bunch of suckers from the lower branches and trunk. I’m only so tall so I couldn’t get them all. I’d love to know what kind of apples grow on this tree.
Lilac tree is budding nicely. I have some Facebook friends who have posted pictures of their lilacs already in bloom. This makes me anxious for ours.
My sedum. I need to remove the old growth. I don’t know why but I always leave it until I see new growth.
The three other trees in our backyard. And look at that grass. I mentioned to Sithboy that he might need to get out this weekend and mow.
These are our shade trees. That branch has been broke since the December ice storm. It took out my clothes line too. The whole thing is coming down but the one behind it stays.
My peonies. I’ll mess with this as it grows. I may need to re-align the tomato cage. This is an old plant. We originally got about six peonies from my husband’s grandmother. That was about fifteen years ago, and they were close to thirty years old at that point.
So far, I’ve seen only three perennials return. I don’t know if it was the hard winter or what. I have a feeling Husband killed the daisy-looking one when he trampled on it. It tried to kill him so no love lost there.
Bachelor Buttons. Such a pretty blue/purple coloured flower. These things are indestructible.
This is a fern-type plant. I can’t remember the name. I think the flowers are pretty. We’ll have to wait and find out.
This is some kind of phlox. I got it from my MIL garden when she was getting ride of her flowers. I’m hoping it flowers before the peonies gets too bushy. This is an old plant too, but I don’t think it’s as old as the peonies.
No pictures of the veggie garden. It still looks like crap.
This time of year things start to grow like crazy. I bet in another two-weeks there will be flowers! That is, if the snow stays away. Seriously Mother Nature, enough all ready.
