Bluebells, tulips, jonquils, hyacinths, and flowering fruit trees are all starting to bloom. Yellow is the color right now but the other colors are coming out pretty fast. We're supposed to have a bit more snow then back to the warmth so at the end of the week I'll plant blueberries and caladiums with a few elephant ears thrown in. We have a lot of shade around the house so that should work to give a bit of color. Up in the garden I'll throw flower seeds around just to see what comes up. A surprise season....might be a big surprise if NOTHing grows...but the iris, lilies and a few other old faithful's are showing their heads.
Love it! Keep Sparkin'!!

I checked the beds around the house, and I think next week I will be able to start tiding up.
My ground covers are all over the place.

Last year I spent about a week striping a garden by the front walk. I thought that I had removed ALL the bulbs and even plowed and tilled the spaces. Went out today to walk the dog and the plots are THICK with Easter lilies. Go figure....here comes the shovel again. I'm determined to move them!

Took another walk though the yard today. Everything is sprouting and looking healthy, but we have no guarantee that we won't face bad weather again. Crocus are all gone. Probably squirrels. Lots to do. If weather holds will be cutting this week.
